Wheat harvest in the Crookston, Minnesota area is slowly getting started. Tim Dufault is having trouble finding dry wheat to combine. “Some of the neighbors are finding some other varieties and if it’s on beet ground, we are able to go. Some of the full season varieties aren’t quite ready yet. So we are just in the early stages of it.” Dufault is pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wheat so far. “We’ve combined a couple different varieties. They seem to be somewhere in the 70-75 bushel to the acre.”
