Custom harvester Scott Brown is harvesting in the Minot, North Dakota area. “We’ve got a pretty fair spring wheat crop. It’s not a bumper crop, but it will be ok. It’s pretty looking wheat.” Brown thinks June is the reason for the lighter yields. “The area went 27 days without moisture and it killed off some of the tillers on the wheat. We’ve got a lot of main stem wheat,” says Brown. “The way the weather is moving, it’s coming along fast. I’d like to see some rain for the beans, but I’d also like to get wheat harvested, too.”
