In the Pisek, North Dakota area, rains were in the 2.8-to-three inch range. Darren Kadlec says that moisture recharge is welcomed. “We were dry all summer long and as I drive around this morning, there’s not a lot of water standing, if any.” Kadlec has about three days left for his corn harvest. With the dry conditions, there wasn’t much moisture in any of the crops. Edible beans were the biggest challenge. “We had trouble with splits that we haven’t had in the past. Sunflowers came out dry, but were in a very workable moisture range and for corn, we haven’t been burning a lot of propane.”
