Colby Kansas-based custom combiner Jim Deibert is harvesting spring wheat in southwestern North Dakota. “We’re north of Scranton fighting green all the time. We have fields that are ready and then, you move to another and it’s not quite ready. The quality is good. The heat cost farmers some bushels.” Deibert had a steady wheat run. “We’ve had a vacation or two. When we changed from winter wheat to spring wheat in South Dakota, we had about one week we couldn’t work, but that’s the way it is sometimes. Last year at this time, we were done with wheat harvest.”
