In the Leeds, North Dakota area, Brian Engstrom has had almost three inches of rain this year. The wheat crop is described as below average-to-average. Engstrom’s corn was planted on last year’s PP ground. “That actually looks really good; if we catch a couple rains and it could be good. Our dry beans look nice at this point, but always a week away from 100 degree temperatures and no rain. Going forward, it is hard to say how the dry beans and soybeans turn out unless we a half inch of rain each week, but that’s a pretty big order.”
