  • Checking on the Wheat
    The Hard Red Spring Wheat Tour is underway, traveling from Fargo to Mandan. North Dakota Wheat Commission marketing director Jim Peterson says on average, the yields are coming in about 10 to 15 percent less than the same route last year. “We’re kind of in the upper 20 bushels per acre to the 50s. It seems like this part of the state went through a dry period in May and June. That’s impacting their yields.”  
  • Wheat Harvest Underway in Minot
    Harvest in the Minot, North Dakota area is just getting started. Dakota Agronomy Partners Seed Division Manager Jeff Heil says the crop looks very good. “The quality of the winter wheat that’s come off so far has been really great. Good test weight. Yields are 70 to 90 bushels/acre," says Heil. "Peas are anywhere from 50s to low 70s. There again, the quality is good. The spring wheat is just getting started.”
  • Decent Wheat Crop Expected
    Visiting with members of the Wheat Quality Council’s Spring Wheat Tour in Devils Lake Wednesday, Crary, North Dakota farmer Fran Leiphon is expecting a decent wheat crop. “The wheat isn’t as good as last year, but it still looks good. Hopefully, we missed the scab threat. Although, when you look at the scab forecast on NDSU’s website, it looks pretty  red through this area.” Leiphon is hopeful the crop was stressed enough to raise the protein. “The largest rain we had at one time was one inch and that was one week ago, Saturday. There’s no flooding and it looks very good. Other than that, we’ve had timely rains.”
  • Saving Grace
    Recent rains in parts of southeastern North Dakota saved the crop. Milnor farmer Scott Mund got .70 on Tuesday night. “We’ve been a matter of days away from a failure. If we wouldn’t have had the three inches of rain two weeks ago, we wouldn’t have the crop right now,” says Mund. “We had corn leaves starting to curl up and pull back and beans starting to curl up.” 
  • A Contrast in Beet Conditions
     Red River Valley Sugarbeet Growers Association President Dan Younggren, who farms at Hallock, Minnesota, says sugabeet crop conditions vary across the region. "We just got done with the shop meetings and I saw a lot of good crop and I saw a lot of bad crop. The field people have this crop at a 27 ton average in the (Red River) Valley, 25 ton in the northern end and quite a bit better on the southern end."
