Past president and USCHI board advisor Jim Deibert says the 2019 harvest season was one for the record books. “My favorite day was the last one. We had trouble in Texas and North Dakota with wet weather. There were some quality issues in the wheat like scab and sprout damage. It was the worst harvest I’ve ever had in North Dakota, but life goes on. We got through it.” Deibert says he will harvest fewer wheat acres in 2020. “There’s a big switch to corn in the Midwest. We lost big wheat acres. There were several farmers in my community that farmed thousands of acres that don’t have any wheat now. It will come back.”
