By most accounts, last year’s crops came off with few hiccups. And then the switch flipped. In many areas, the season’s first run of bad weather shut down most fall fieldwork — and that was that. If you’re wondering how you’ll get your fields ready to plant this spring, it’s not too early to strategize.

If you don’t yet have a soil-sampling plan for your fields, it’s time to dust off the soil probe or contact your agronomist.
