Crops in the North Dakota’s Cass County look better than what was expected after the late spring. Matt Powell, who is part of the Ihry Pioneer Seed Agency at Hope, North Dakota, offers insight into the crop. “The wheat and barley crops look really good; we’ve had some nice weather to get that off,” said Powell. “For the corn and soybean guys, hopefully, we can get through the rest of the month with some good heat units and move on to the next chapter of the year.” In many cases, the corn had to be mudded in this spring. Despite that, the corn has a lot of potential. “It was all seeded from May 17 to June and it is one of the better stands we’ve had in years. For what Mother Nature gave us, we’re excited.” Watch the interview.
