Farms west of Hillsboro, North Dakota area received about three inches of rain in the past few weeks. Farmer Cody Kritzberger says the biggest challenge of the year was a dry spell from mid July through late August. There’s hope the rain will fill soybean pods and put test weight on corn. Kritzberger says the crops are hanging on. “I think our corn ears kind of nosed back a little bit and I know we lost the potential on the soybeans, but they still actually look fairly decent. We went from record good crop to maybe an average crop or maybe even hopefully slightly above average. Time will tell.”
