Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers Vice President of Operations Coreen Berdahl was a driver during last week’s spring wheat tour. On the final day, Berdahl drove on the northern and eastern route away from Devils Lake. “We drove through Langdon, Cavalier and went through Hallock. On the North Dakota side, yields were good. Fields were dry. Nothing really to notice,” explains Berdahl. “Fields looked good with adequate moisture, not wet by any means, but you could see a change in the fields crossing over into Minnesota.” Fields are wetter in Minnesota. “We saw fields that had growth stages from boot to flowering. The last field we saw was just flowering. Disease doesn’t seem bad, but yields were lower.”
