Freeze Update from the Twin Cities
Thursday’s freeze caused significant damage to the state’s soybean crop, while also hurting many of the state’s cornfields, University of Minnesota agronomists said Friday.
“Because there were so many fields that had significant loss, (yield losses) could be as bad as 10 percent of our total production overall,” said Seth Naeve, the U’s soybean specialist. “It may be worse. That’s a hard thing to say.”
