Across the Dakotas and Minnesota, the pace of harvest varies. “The areas that had plenty of moisture are slower to start corn harvest and some of the moisture stressed areas are almost done with harvest,” said Rick Swenson, lead agronomist, Peterson Farms Seed. Corn should be monitored closely. “Where we had some of that wind come through three-to-four weeks ago from Elbow Lake to Sauk Centre, Minnesota, those farmers are paying the price. There’s corn that’s 50-to-90 percent flat after the storms.”
