Corn and soybeans fields in east central North Dakota still have standing water in them. Page Seed and Agronomy co-owner Paige Elsner says while a lot of the corn in the Page area did reach maturity, but moisture content is still high. “I have been happy with test weight so far. There will be some heavy corn harvested with a phenomenal yield.” says Elsner. “It’s just too bad a lot of it is still standing in water right now.” Elsner does have concerns about stalk rot and recommends farmers walk those fields to conduct a push test. “When we are able to harvest, go after the more saturated fields first.”
