Farmers in the northeastern corner of North Dakota are making slow, but steady planting progress. “It’s probably slower progress than we’d like to see,” says Mark Ramsey, owner, MR Consulting. “The wetter stuff being the old soybean and dry bean ground seems to be our stickler on what we can’t get across. Otherwise, most of the old sugarbeet ground going to wheat seems to be planted. Sugarbeet planting isn’t as timely, but it should be pretty much wrapped up.” Crops are just starting to emerge. “We really haven’t been in long enough to look, but just driving by the fields we seeded a few weeks ago, you can see some wheat coming through. I think emergence will be fine. If we can get the crops up and running, we’ll be in great shape.”
