The snow is causing a slight delay in Kulm, North Dakota farmer Bart Schott’s corn harvest. Corn harvest is two-thirds complete. “We’re close enough to see the end of harvest, but we aren’t there yet. We’ve had really tough harvest days.” Ahead of the snow, corn moisture’s varied in the crop, from 17 to 19 percent and then, drier in locations. “On some fields, we had corn at 14 to 15 percent moisture. The moisture is turning out the same as yields: you don’t know why some fields are yielding better than others. Overall, it’s good quality corn.”
