The pace of this planting season is very dependent upon on the conditions last fall. Arthur Companies grain merchandiser Jenna Knutson recaps the harvest season in the Harvey, North Dakota area. “We saw 30 inches of snow in early October and after that, some areas saw up to eight-and-a-half inches of rain; it was a very wet fall.” Despite that, Knutson says there is little prevent plant in the immediate Harvey area. Marketing has been at a standstill. “Compared to previous years, we’re definitely behind on our forward selling just because the market has not helped us out with new crop.”
