Gully Farmer Suffers Frost Damage in August
Gully, MN — Farmers have dealt with a number of difficulties this year, from the late frost in the spring to the heat and drought throughout the summer, but one Gully area farmer may have had the worst luck when it comes to mother nature. Chad Dyrdahl had a good looking soybean crop this year, but lady luck was not on his side and last week’s cool down was a little too cool for comfort. Dyrdahl says he had several hundred acres of soybeans suffer frost damage…and on Friday the 13th of all days.
To make matters even worse, Drydahl is a beginning farmer. He says he’s leaning on help from neighbors and fellow farmers who have been there, done that for advice on how to move forward.
Chad also grows corn on his farm, which he says varies from good to not good at all. Despite the difficulties this year, he remains optimistic and is worried more about the area ranchers and their troubles.
Chad Dyrdahl was a featured guest on this week’s Farm and Field Show. Listen back to his interview and all featured interviews on our website, rjbroadcasting.com. The Farm and Field Show is heard Wednesdays from 2-5pm on 106.5 KRJB.
