The harvest end is in sight for farmers near Hillsboro, North Dakota. Lovas Ag Consulting owner Sarah Lovas says some farmers are facing challenges with harvesting soybeans in snow. “When snow gets in the hoppers or trucks, the grain bridges up and the unloading augers stop working,” says Lovas. “So instead, farmers have been putting their flex headers on top of the snow and combining.” As a result, Lovas goes on to say there has been some yield loss. “I’ve been doing some soil sampling behind the combine. On average, there is about a 10 bushel per acre loss.”
