The standing corn across North Dakota and northwest Minnesota was an ongoing topic of discussion at Commodity Classic. Arthur, North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes, who is the past president of the National Corn Growers Association, sees it as a very tenuous situation. “At the end of 2019, we probably had 40 percent or more of our corn left in the field; it was a million-and-a-half acres. Maybe, USDA is counting that as on-farm storage.” North Dakota Soybean Growers Association President Joe Ericson finished up most of his corn a week ago. “It feels good; we still have a little left with the drifts. The test weight never really came up and instead of waiting, we decided to get it done so we could start thinking about spring work.”
