Planting may have started slowly this year thanks to rainy weather. And we had some early season growing problems due to cool, wet ground. But, as it usually does, the weather warmed up, the crops began to grow, and the rains came and made for a mild summer.
Special thanks to Jenna Martin for headlining our “Girl Starts Strong” series this year. It has been a real pleasure to follow this inspiring young farmer as she embarked on her first year in her own field. She learned a lot, and we did too. Jenna’s ambition assures us all that the future of agriculture is in good hands. We asked Jenna to offer some closing thoughts on the 2014 growing season. Here she is in her own words.
Watch this week and you'll see Jenna closing the season on her Armor Seed verification field.
First things first, are there prettier skies anywhere in the country?
There's something going on in Jenna's field this week, but it's not harvest.
