Grain movement off farms is beginning to slow as grain bins empty out. North Dakota Grain Dealers Association Executive Director Stu Letcher says we are seeing some clean-up movement. “We’re starting to see the end of it. The recent cold snap was hard on the railroad so they get behind. We’re starting to see some catch up from that, but once that moves, things will slow down.” Letcher hasn’t heard of any seed or fertilizer supply issues from grain elevators. “We’re ok on supplies and the price of phosphate increased over the winter. If farmers haven’t booked phosphate and go in to buy some, you’ll be surprised. Go ahead and check into that.”
