North Dakota farmers are beginning to wrap up soybean harvest. Mike Kelly, who farms near Niagara, ND, says almost every soybean bushel has come off dry. “We lost a few bushels in low spots or near tree groves with the snow and rain. Otherwise, moisture has ran between 12.5 to 13.5. We also fought some mud with the headers, but other than that harvest has gone well.” Kelly goes on to say that yields are average to slightly above average for the area. “Everything has been in that 30-plus range. One more rain in August would have made it a bin buster, but sometimes you have to know when to be thankful.”
