Nutrien Ag Solutions Sales Agronomist Kris Tedrow says most crops around the Wahpeton, North Dakota area had a good start. “We were fortunate around here that farmers could get into the fields early. The further north and west you go, there’s still corn that needs to be harvested. I’m guessing there’s less than five percent of standing corn out in the field in our area,” says Tedrow. In the Fergus Falls, Minnesota area the crops are making good progress. AgCountry Farm Credit Services Vice President of Insurance and Commodity Marketing Education Rob Fronning says things are going well. “We’ve had some rain in the last few days. North and west of here, they got more than they wanted. Going south, near Morris and Benson, they’ve been dry.” Underwood, Minnesota farmer Lance Peterson says the crops are so far, so good. “Soils started off a little cool and wet at planting. In some fields, corn emergence looks great and on others, not so much. The soybean emergence overall is ok. There are lots of tricks to deal with that.” Listen to Crop Watch.
