At Lakota, North Dakota, Lee Dahl with Northland Seed and Service remains hopeful about the local crop. “Some of the later-planted crops have good potential if we continue to get rain. There’s some later (planted) canola that looks pretty nice; there’s some nice bean potential and there’s a lot of pinto beans that look pretty decent, too.” Carl Jensen operates Jensen Seed at Pekin says the local corn crop is holding on. “I kind of wonder what the corn is surviving on because our subsoil moisture has been depleted for a long time; the last meaningful rain we had was July 28 of last year.” Watch the video interview on YouTube.
