Minot area's 2012 crop outlook mostly hopefulJanuary 25, 2012 - 7:38pmbusiness/agriculture
MINOT, N.D. - In his 40 years of farming, Jim McCullough has seen a lot.
Last year, the Regan, N.D., producer battled a wet spring, hail and crop disease that fungicide applications couldn't prevent. "It wasn't an easy year," he said.
Now, with spring planting inching closer, McCullough said he's "kind of optimistic" about the 2012 crop. "Inputs are getting up there a little bit, but I think we can have a good year."
