Mott, North Dakota farmer Josh Greff started sunflower harvest last week. “Some of it was was at 3,400 pounds. The moisture is lower, but we shouldn’t have to worry too much about fire.” Greff says it’s been a very different harvest this year. “Last year, we had completely dry stems. We had a lot of smolders. We reset our combine settings this year, but not having the fire risk is good. We’re still waiting on a frost, we really haven’t had a killing frost yet.”
