  • Very High Vom Levels
    According to North Dakota Wheat Commission marketing director Jim Peterson, there are very high levels of vomitoxin in northwest North Dakota. "It does not seem to be as big of an issue for spring wheat, but, for durum it is causing market uncertainty." Peterson says Canada also has some vom issues and is the biggest wild card for the market. "They are just getting started in their harvest so that could change, but with durum that seems to be a bigger issue than what we had hoped for."
  • Harvest Suprises
    Altendorf Harvesting is cutting wheat close to home, near Grafton and Drayton in northeast North Dakota. Jan Altendorf says combining is a struggle with the wet conditions. “We’re going to put tracks on our equipment," says Altendorf. "Drayton is a lot wetter than Grafton. Grafton is a little bit of a struggle, but we get a little bit done each day. The wheat is coming off very dry. It’s just the ground that’s holding us back.” Altendorf is surprised about the quality of the wheat. “Protein is a little low, but there’s still some decent protein. Test weights are where they should be." Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc.
  • Pro Farmer Wraps Up Tour
    Pro Farmer is forecasting good corn yields, but they are not as large as what USDA projected earlier this month. Recapping the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour, the average U.S. corn yield is estimated at 170.2 bushels per acre. That compares to USDA’s latest estimate of 175.1 bushels per acre. Pro Farmer is estimating the average soybean yield at 49.3 bushels per acre, which is higher than USDA’s projection of 48.9 bushels. "There are great crops are out there and we have a better handle on it after being in nearly 1,400 fields," said Brian Grete, editor, Pro Farmer. Overall, Pro Farmer is forecasting a 14.7 billion bushel corn crop and a record soybean crop of 4.09 billion bushels. Those numbers compare to the latest USDA estimate of 15.1 billion bushels for corn and 4.06 billion bushels for soybeans.
