According to Bayer Customer Business Advisor Adam Sip, the last blast of winter weather caused harvest delays in east central North Dakota and west central Minnesota. “I’ve had several plots that have been punted on three or four times. A month has gone by with little progress and it’s irritating for everyone.” Sip says some farmers are fortunate to be done with harvest and fall fieldwork while others have crops left in the field. Yields have been better than expected. “I don’t know how many times I’ve heard from guys that don’t know where it came from. It’s certainly a huge blessing.” There are areas where yields came up short that received less than three inches of rain throughout the season.
