The Red River Farm Network made a stop at Ashley, North Dakota Tuesday for the Crop Watch broadcast. Tony Neu said his crop was in desperate need of rain. “We’ve had some spotty rain, but the main farm has had less than an inch of rain in the last month.” Kulm farmer Andy Schott has seen a few small rains and a small amount of hail this season, but not enough to make an impact. “Some of the fields are going to start going backwards after this week’s heat wave goes through. It’s kind of like last year, but a quarter of a mile makes all the difference, it’s just so variable.”
