A south-eastern Illinois farmer hopes key decision makers are hearing from his industry.
Dennis Green farms outside of Lawrenceville—near the Indiana border. He says it’s important for his colleagues to speak up, especially to state and federal lawmakers.
And Green says farmers also need to listen and learn from other farmers on various practices, like no-till. Steve Stallman of Chester knows about that.
Stallman has received almost a foot of rain in his area of the state, but still has 85-percent of his corn planting complete.
