East Grand Forks, Minnesota farmer Chris Adams says there’s anywhere between three and 20 percent defoliation on some of his dry bean fields thanks to hail storms. “We haven’t even gone through our wheat and soybeans yet for damage. We went through all of our dry bean fields. This last storm has some too. So we have to go back out there and recheck again.” Adams says the crops look spectacular with timely rains. “Having a late season with wheat and sugar beets, they definitely caught up to where we were last year.”
