“This is one of the most challenging harvests North Dakota farmers have ever faced.” Those words come from North Dakota Grain Growers Association President Dan Wogsland, who says conditions aren’t getting any easier. Extreme moisture has resulted in quality issues, such as low falling numbers, sprouting and mold. “Farmers sell quality. If there was a ‘silver bullet’ we could incorporate today, we’d do it” says Wogsland. “Unfortunately we don’t have that, so we’re taking the avenue of working with decision makers on securing disaster assistance.” Wogsland adds farmers should report any crops losses or other damages to their local Extension agent to aid in preparing a Secretarial disaster declaration. “No matter what do you with policy, it cannot replace a good crop and harvest weather.” Hear from Wogsland in the interview.
