Mother Nature has been a blessing in the Thief River Falls area. Ken Rivard leads K-Star Ag Services and said the crops are surprisingly good. “Three weeks of cool weather in June made one heck of a wheat crop. Corn pollination is good and the soybeans seem to be filling up as well.” There were some pollination issues in the drier and sandier areas, but Rivard expected it to be a lot worse. There is some corn that has black layered and more will likely happen after the heat this weekend. A farmer in the nearby Badger area has started his soybean harvest. The video interview is online.
