Near Karlstad, Minnesota, Justin Dagen is trying to wrap up seed potato harvest. “We’ve had to be very patient through the long, hot period this fall. Now, the forecast looks great. Temperatures are cool. We’ve received rain and harvest conditions are beautiful. We’re about 30 percent along on the sugarbeets, jumping back and forth from harvesting potatoes.” Dagen isn’t too concerned about running up against a frost or freeze this late in harvest. “We’re optimistic we’ll finish up in good shape.”
