Horizon Resources Grain Division Manager Levi Hall is already thinking ahead to next year’s small grains crop. Around Williston, North Dakota, Hall thinks there will be a shift in acreage from spring wheat to durum. In the central part of North Dakota, some of the wheat acres will shift to corn or soybeans. “New crop values in the high $12 for soybeans and $4.50 for corn, I think that will make it hard for spring wheat to compete in that environment. All crops look like they have the potential to pencil out for next year, assuming we can get rain and more moderate temps. If that’s the case, we may see a reduction in spring wheat acres.”
