JAMESTOWN, N.D. (Prairie Public Radio) – The president of the North Dakota Farmers Union says farmers do have concerns over the high prices for diesel fuel.

But Mark Watne says farmers are more concerned about input costs, such as fertilizer and chemical prices.

Watne says farmers are doing what they have to do to pay those input costs.

Watne says farmers are like anyone else – they don’t want to pay higher prices.

Watne says farmers are doing less tilling and that’s been cutting down on fuel costs.
