The pinch on input availability is easing, according to a producer

An Ohio farmer says he is not worried about input availability this year.

Ryan Mohr grows corn and soybeans in the northwest part of Ohio. He says he struggled last year getting the products he needed with many of them unavailable, but this year he says it is the exact opposite with seed already in the warehouse a full month and a half before planting season.

Diesel and propane costs have him concerned, though. Just last week, GasBuddy warned with refinery maintenance season just around the corner, diesel prices could shoot up as much as $0.85 per gallon between now and Memorial Day.
