Thanks to the rich soil, abundant moisture, and plenty of open spaces, it is easy to say that southern Minnesota is serious about soybeans and keen on corn. That’s why national Ag day has a special significance in the region.
Sam Ziegler, director of Green Seam, said: “Ag is involved in nearly everything that happens in this community. You can look at almost any corner and there’s a manufacturer in a town. Whether it’s Mankato or Waseca or Janesville…others. You see Ag happening. But also you’ll start to see here in the upcoming weeks you’ll see the planters and the field activity happening as well which is a part of the ag system. ”
