Near Wolverton, Minnesota, Jay Nord wrapped up soybean harvest, but it was a challenge this year. “When it rained on Labor Day, the soybeans decided to start growing again so it was nightmare to get finished and combined.” Nord is back in the field after a seven-day weather delay. He’s hoping weather will hold to finish the corn. “We had some really nice soybeans and some really bad soybeans. So far our corn has been a little more disappointing than we thought.” From planting to Labor Day, Nord received only five inches of rain. Since Labor Day, there has been six inches of rain locally. “We need the rain for next year, but could have used a little bit of it in July and August.”
