In the Hope, North Dakota area, farmer Josh Ihry was able to start planting this year’s crop in mid-May. While Ihry did get spring wheat seeded and corn planted, the fields fit to plant were very selective. “We probably only got about 15-to-20 percent of our intended corn acres planted, but fortunate to get all of our wheat acres seeded.” Ihry was finally able to wrap up harvesting the 2019 corn crop three days ago. Those late-harvested acres are posing challenges with getting the remainder of this year’s crop planted. “I think you’re going to see anywhere from 25-to-35 percent prevent plant in our area. If we get any additional moisture between now and then that number could grow to 50 percent or more for some farmers.” Listen to the interview with Ihry here.
