The latest rains near Dickinson, North Dakota were welcome. Farmer Ed Kessel said it’s probably too late to help any of the small grains. Kessel just finished harvesting winter wheat and is harvesting barley. “It was a little on the green side at first,” said Kessel. “The wheat quality was just beautiful, probably some of the nicest winter wheat I’ve had. The field peas received a shower the day before harvest. We’ll keep moving forward.” This Harvest Hotline update is made possible by U.S. Custom Harvesters, Incorporated, AgCountry Farm Credit Services and the North Dakota Mill.
