The rains missed farmers in central and western North Dakota. Hazen farmer John Weinand would appreciate several timely rains, but is moving forward with planting. “We’re working on field peas now and we’ve been working on small grains. It’s tough because you can’t even seed to moisture and we put the drill in deeper. It won’t go in deep enough and there’s probably not enough moisture to sprout it. I guess we’re dormant seeding.” The calendar tells Weinand it’s time to plant small grains, field peas and durum. “It’s the right time of the year and we need to go.”
