Farmers in north central North Dakota made one last push to finish wheat and canola harvest before the rain and snow. In the Rolla, North Dakota area, very few, if any, soybeans went through the combine. “Some of the fields just aren’t ready because we haven’t had that hard, killing frost and it’s terribly wet,” says North Border Seed and Consulting owner Ross Garrison. Once harvest resumes, Garrison says farmers will need to start prioritizing fields. “We may end up harvesting the corn first to get it in through the dryer before stalks break down.” Hear more from Garrison in the latest Pioneer Agronomy Update Facebook video.
