It’s going to be a hot week for a wheat tour as more than 40 participants travel across North Dakota. Hot temperatures combined with a lack of moisture will translate into an interesting spring wheat crop. The first leg of the tour starts on Tuesday in southeastern North Dakota. This could be the best wheat on the tour. South Dakota Wheat Commission Executive Director Reid Christopherson will have a car traveling across northeastern South Dakota, too. “Farmers in the area say it’s not going to be the best harvest, but at least there’s a crop.” The first day of the tour ends in Mandan. Participants expect dire conditions over the next few days. North Dakota Wheat Commission Administrator Neal Fisher says spring wheat abandonment will be part of the tour story. “We hear people talking about a 150 million bushel crop instead of 330 million bushels. That’s a significant drop.” Hear the story.
