Farmers are slowly, but surely, trying to start corn and soybean harvest in the Red River Valley. Based at Thompson, North Dakota, Stenvold Ag Service owner Mike Stenvold says farmers are assessing and prioritizing corn fields. “I’ve hand shelled some samples and obviously moisture is still high. It’s hard to find anything under 30 percent,” says Stenvold. “Test weights are looking to be acceptable.” For soybeans fields with standing water, Pioneer field agronomist Kristie Sundeen says farmers need to be on the look out for sprouting. “One of the dealers in the Roseau, Minnesota area did find some. So just make sure to check fields and be aware of the possibility.” Watch the Pioneer Agronomy Update on the Red River Farm Network Facebook page.
