Farmers get jump on spring work

An early spring with lack of snow and significant moisture has allowed farmers across most parts of Franklin County to get into fields and do a lot of early spring work.

 

The situation is in stark contrast to one year ago when abundant snow was followed by weeks of rain and cooler-than-normal temperatures. Last year many farmers could not even get onto fields to plant until the first part of June.

David Bosen, who farms north and west of Preston, said he has been able to get a lot of his spring field work done already.

“Last year we couldn’t get onto our ground until the first part of June. Things have been considerably different this year,” he said.

Bosen said he lost a little alfalfa this spring because of standing water.
