While the growing season has been wet in central North Dakota, farmers are squeezing some harvest in. At Dazey, North Dakota, barley harvest is underway for farmer Jim Broten. “We’ve had a lot of rain here, so it’s at best going to be an average crop. It’s still standing fairly well, yet, and down to 14 percent moisture.” Broten says it will be quite some time until row crop harvest, as the crop was planted very late. “Ninety-day corn at Dazey, North Dakota will have to go November 12 frost-free to make it. Of course, that won’t happen. It will be a matter of how wet it is and what kind of test weight we have.” Harvest Hotline is made possible by the North Dakota Mill, AgCountry Farm Credit Services and U.S. Custom Harvesters, Incorporated.
