Early Minnesota Frost Impact Varies From Field to Field

18:00PM Sep 23, 2014

Early frost a week ago has some farmers in southern Minnesota worried about this fall's harvest — which they were hoping to delay after a late spring thaw.

The Mankato Free Press reports the impact of the frost has been different from field to field. The farms that saw the most impact are in Sibley and Le Sueur counties.

Randy Rieke is general manager for the Farmers Co-op of Hanska. He says he's expecting widespread impact because plants are still immature. He says many farmers are struggling to find enough time for plants to grow.
