Western North Dakota hasn’t had a good rain since the beginning of July. Agile Agronomy owner Kyle Okke says despite that, the corn crop is doing surprisingly well. “Let’s just put it this way, even though we haven’t seen near the rain in the last 30 days, our corn looks exceptionally good. All the rain we received in the months of May and June really set us up for a good crop.” Okke isn’t too worried about the recent high temps. “Heat stress looks to be minimal for us. My only concern is if we get extremely hot and don’t get the moisture to keep filling kernels.”
