Soil moisture is above average in much of the Dakotas and Minnesota heading into 2022. “We had a lot of rain in early September, took a bit of a break and then, had incredible rains in October. Many folks had an autumn’s worth of rain in October,” says Daryl Ritchison, director, North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network. “Then, we had another good rain in November before the ground froze. We’re sitting pretty good right now with one exception in northwestern North Dakota. The rest of the region will start 2022 really well.”
