North Dakota farmers are slowly making progress on corn harvest. USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service says at the end of January, corn harvest in North Dakota was 49 percent complete. That’s a slight increase from December. Muddy, snowy fields are causing delays. Wimbledon, North Dakota farmer Rob Hanson says some farmers are still trying to push through and make progress. “We tried it in late January and the moisture was in the 20 to 21 percentage range,” said Hanson. “I think I’ll leave the corn another month or so to see if the snow will settle.” There hasn’t been as much snow in other parts of the state. Some are done with corn harvest. Belfield, North Dakota farmer Ed Kessel wrapped up in mid-January. “The corn was still a little wet and those farmers who still have corn to harvest near me will likely wait until spring to wrap up.” Listen to the story.
