After a drought last year, the Sykeston, North Dakota area is now dealing with too much water. The ground may look dry at the surface, but Jamie Richter says it is a very different story underneath. “It’s very wet and it doesn’t take much to get struck; if you see a spot that looks wet, stay away from it.” Richter got all of his intended barley acreage seeded and about 70 percent of the corn. The focus is now on soybeans. Richter has never seen a year like this one. “This is my 36th year farming and it was never this wet this late, it is unbelievable really.” Richter shares his thoughts on the ’22 growing season in this video interview.
