Montana Farmers Turn to Rotation Crops

Montana farmers are planting less wheat this year. The main reason is that prices are low and last year they planted back to back crops when commodity prices were high.
Carl Mattson of the Montana Grain Growers Association confirmed this adding many people double-cropped when prices were so high.
Farmers are now planting pulse crops that do not need fertilizer and naturally return nitrogen into the soil.
According to a survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture last month said farmers intend to plant 125,000 acres of lentils, up from 83,000 last year.
