We have received questions lately on the impact of increased fuel prices on Nebraska's agricultural producers. While the direction is certain, the magnitude of the effect is a difficult question to answer. Strategies employed by individual producers that we have visited with range from a few who locked in diesel fuel prices at lower levels, to those who were waiting as long as possible to buy their fuel for spring work.
