Horizon Resources Grain Division Manager Levi Hall says this week’s heat isn’t going to help the small grains in the Dakotas. “The drought stress is real and the crops are really feeling it, despite the rains we’ve had in the northwest corner of North Dakota.” As expected, North Dakota’s durum wheat conditions continue to decline. “We’ll probably have another decline in the next week from the USDA. There’s stuff already turning yellow. It’s not uncommon to see a little tint starting to show in this part of North Dakota this time of the year, but it’s early.”
