Input challenges are a problem for 2023


Input challenges are a problem for 2023

Farmers are already thinking about inputs for the next growing season.

Lance Lillibridge, a farmer from eastern Iowa, says his family bought fertilizer ahead of last year’s big price increases, but he’s very concerned about 2023. “It takes a lot of money to grow a crop,” Lillibridge said. “If you double and triple the price, it becomes very difficult for some people to get that funding.”

Lee Tesdell farms in Polk County in central Iowa. “A neighbor told me his nitrogen was $450 a ton last year and was quoted $1,500 this spring,” Tesdell said.

Tesdell says the brownfield farm’s income is a big problem despite higher grain prices. “I would have to look at the table, but I’m not sure if these (grain) prices would compensate for the increased input prices,” he said. Input challenges are a problem for 2023
