Fordville, North Dakota farmer Greg Skibicki has been busy seeding wheat and planting corn. However, a shot of rain would be welcomed. “It’s dusty,” says Skibicki. “We’re no-tilling into old pinto bean ground and it’s real powdery on top. We can go in pretty much any field we want right now.” Just to the east near Minto, North Dakota, Jay Gudajtes says it’s been tough to plant into moisture in some fields. “It’s awfully dry out there, which has been inhibiting progress as far as seeding into the moisture. Also, some of the frost isn’t out yet, so we’ve had to be careful.”
