Soybean farmer optimistic

Despite the challenges of weather and input costs, the soybean crop in central Missouri appears to be on track for another good year.

Brookfield farmer Brian Brockman admitted that practices that worked this year are not normal and wouldn't normally work.

"The rain we received during planting season really made it difficult for us to get the crops in," said Brockman, who farms about 1,000 acres with his dad, Bill. "We did some things like planting corn in the mud that we wouldn't normally do."

Brockman also purchased a new planter, nearly twice the size of their old one
