Crops like spring wheat and lentils are being planted in western North Dakota. Coleharbor, North Dakota farmer Paul Anderson is planting lentils. “After that, we’ll follow with wheat, soybeans, corn and sunflowers. We’re starting herky jerky.” When it comes to rotation, Anderson says all eyes are on what’s happening in the eastern part of the state. “Crop rotations probably won’t change unless we hear news beans aren’t getting planted in the eastern part of North Dakota,” says Anderson. “If we get some strengthening in the edible bean market in the next few weeks, we could switch acres to edibles at the expense of soybeans.”
