In southwestern North Dakota, harvest is stalled until snow melts off the crop. High yields still wait in the field. Harlan Klien, who farms at Elgin, said this has been the best crop he can remember during his farming career. “It’s been a challenge to get things off the field. It was wet during wheat harvest, it’s been wet this fall again. Then we got this ten-to-12 inches of snow.” Harvest will likely have to wait until the ground freezes, but Klein is confident they will eventually get the crop off.
