Farmers in the Cooperstown, North Dakota area continue to struggle with harvest. Ag Advantage Consulting owner Jonathan Erickson says there is corn and some soybeans left in fields. While corn can be harvested over the snow, soybeans have been a struggle. “Farmers are cutting above the snow, taking about the two-thirds of the plant and leaving the rest,” says Erickson. “In many areas there are 50 bushel soybeans, so they are yielding fairly well. However, it is estimated they are leaving about 10 bushels per acre in the field.”
