North of Rugby, North Dakota, Steve Fritel made planting progress before the recent rains came. “The last week of May was good for us and the weather cooperated,” says Fritel. “A few of the fields we looked at and thought there was no way we’d be able to get in to plant and the situation changed 24 hours later.” Farmers in North Dakota’s Pembina County are making progress. “Most everyone is getting more than 20 to 30 percent of the soybeans planted,” says Mark Ramsey, agronomist, M.R. Consulting. “Half of the wheat is planted. Canola is more than 60 percent complete.” Ramsey is not expecting planting plans to change yet. Hear the update.
