Farmers in Barnes County, North Dakota continue to harvest the 2019 corn crop. According to NDSU Extension Agent Randy Grueneich, farmers are progressing, but equipment is getting stuck and the recent storms knocked down some stalks. “The gifts from 2019 keep giving and the latest gift was the wind from a rain storm that downed a lot of corn.” Farmers still need to get the field back in workable condition. “I’ve noticed some farmers have also baled stover on some of the stuff that got combined this spring.” Grueneich said farmers are trying vertical tillage and chopped to get a cover crop on it in mid-July.
