CHS Ag Services Thief River Falls sales agronomist Josh Knaack says the small grain harvest is underway in his area. “The barley is off. It actually turned out pretty good. Wheat is coming off and it seems to be pretty promising. Not as good as last year, but I definitely can’t complain.” Knaack is seeing some impact from fusarium head blight. “With a fungicide, we definitely got better control. Even with the fungicides, we’re seeing scab in the fields. Just the high humidity we had for most of the summer, it’s just so conducive for having scab.”
