Crop Insurance average yields are 32 bushels on spring wheat re-crop.

Jim has seen lot’s of changes over the 40+ years he has been farming, going from 1/2 farming to full direct seed with the air drill, gps, and autosteer. During his career, he has also witnessed the introduction of different crops such as Peas & Lentils, Canola. A few years ago Jim tried using the exhaust emissions thru the air tank into the ground with no fertilizer, and found that they needed to add a little extra fertilizer. He also uses different bio-products on his seed and in his spray program.
