The end is in sight for the wheat harvest in northwest Minnesota and northeast North Dakota. “Yields are okay, not tremendous, but there is stuff in spots that caught a rain that is a pleasant surprise and wheat on old beet ground that is all dried up,” said CHS Ag Services Sales Manager Andrew Schultz. Corn and soybeans have taken advantage of any little pop-up showers that came their way. “We’re pretty fortunate, we must have had some moisture in the soil early. A lot of locations are six-to-eight inches under what their historical rainfall is so if we can get something pulled out of this dirt we’ll have some ‘okay’ happy farmers.”
