There aren’t many parts of North Dakota that are anywhere close to normal for rainfall. Asgrow Dekalb Agronomist Evan Twedt says the McHenry area in Foster County is an exception. “Since May 1, we are at 100 percent of normal moisture. We didn’t have a ton of subsoil moisture going into this so I think we’ve used everything we could for crop growth.” Twedt is seeing farmers invest in this year’s crop. “Guys have stuck to plans this year with markets where they’re at, there’s something to chase after.”
