Kansas based custom harvester Mike Dolechek is harvesting in the Carpio and Berthold, North Dakota areas. “We picked up extra work and will make a decent run out of it.” Dolechek says the wheat crop has been decent. “We got into one big field that was in prevent plant last year. That stuff hit around 70 bushels/acre. The normal wheat is running in the 40 bushels/acre range.” The canola is mixed. “We harvested a lot of 1,500 pound canola. I’m hearing many people at 1,200 to 1,500 pounds for canola.”
