Near Emerado, North Dakota, farmer Jared Hagert is harvesting navy beans and pinto beans. “Right now, they’re below average. There’s later planted beans that looks a bit better. It’s coming off now and there are many combines rolling. We’ve got a few more days if the weather cooperates. Then, we’ll position for soybean harvest.” Hagert plans to start soybean harvest at the end of the week. “In our area, we were fortunate to get a few shots of rain to help finish the soybean crop. The rains we got in August and the first part of September, it’s nice to get a soil recharge. That rain helped the pod fill in soybeans out quite a bit.”
