Clark Price has dryland corn and crop that is under pivot in the Washburn, North Dakota region. Price, who operates the River Ag Pioneer agency, says a lot of soybeans were planted before corn. The crop was full of foliage early, “but, then they ran out of moisture.” Central North Dakota has had just one decent rain since early July. “There’s a few less pods than I’d like to see, but hopefully the beans will size up now that we’ve gotten a rain and add some yield.” Early soybeans are starting to turn. Corn is slightly behind the average pace for Growing Degree Units “so we’ll probably need the full month of September to get the crop to maturity.” What can be expected for yield? “I think we’ll have an APH crop or maybe a little less than an APH crop.” View the video.
