The focus is soybean harvest for most parts of the tri-state area. Proseed President and General Manager Keith Peltier says while yields are around average, they are spotty. “In northwest Minnesota and northeast North Dakota, areas that had good subsoil moisture and were able to catch the rains are in the 45-to-50 bushel per acre range. Those not as fortunate are around 30-to-35 bushels.” Corn harvest is just starting throughout much of the region. According to Peltier, early yields fall within expectations. “The lighter soils that were challenged in the east are running 135-to-155 bushels per acre. Areas that had no moisture stress are looking at close to 200 bushel or over.”
