In the Rolla, North Dakota area, Tim Mickelson is half done with the spring wheat harvest. So far, the crop has good quality. “In this whole area, the spring wheat yields are off probably 10 to 15 bushels per acre, in general, but the quality is there.” Canola harvest isn’t far away. Mickelson is trying to decide when to desiccate the crop. Weather is a big factor and it’s been a variable year. “We’re going to take the canola straight instead of wind rowing it. Usually by this time we have more harvested. This year, there’s only about 25 percent of the crop harvested in the area.”
