The central and northern Red River Valley experienced a wet fall, delaying harvest and for some, spring planting. Prevent plant will be a reality for some farmers. However, Mayville, North Dakota farmer Brent Kohls got all of his corn harvested, which helped set the farm up well this spring. “We were able to get going early on planting. From April 28 to May 1, we got 1,300 acres planted. Of that, we planted 600 acres of soybeans early,” said Kohls. “Those soybeans are looking nice now. They sure look good.” Kohls said there are some who have struggled with the wet soils. The Mayville area will have a better idea of prevent plant this week.
