North Dakota Wheat Commission Policy and Marketing Director Jim Peterson is expecting spring wheat acres this spring to be steady to slightly higher than last year. “Historically, we’re still looking at very good returns on wheat,” said Peterson. “Is the incentive there for U.S. (spring wheat) producers? Yes, but we have a lot of competition. Last year, it was malt barley. Soybeans are competing hard again this year, canola, even corn.”
