Doug Reimers has started barley harvest near Jamestown, North Dakota. While zthe height was stunted by early heat, Doug Reimers, Jamestown, says the barley yield wasn’t impacted. “The crop we’ve been combining is probably half height, but the yield is still there. Late rains filled out the heads.” Other fall crops could use a drink, but seem to be holding steady. There may be some spotty pollination issues in the corn. “Soybeans look like they’re going to be a fantastic crop this year. There are a lot of three and four bean pods. We’re really excited to get into soybeans.” Listen to the full interview with Doug Reimers here.
