“The corn near Amenia, North Dakota has surprisingly good potential,” says Terry Bruns with Rush River Ag. With later planting dates, the main worry is reaching maturity. When comparing the current GDUs with the long-term average, Bruns says there are reasons for optimism. During the RRFN interview, Bruns broke an ear of corn in half to evaluate conditions. The corn is dented with little tipback. Bruns also discussed stalk health. “The forecast is giving us more GDUs and we’ve been pretty good on moisture.”
