Rain Puts Producers Further Behind
Tue, 21 May 2013
In the Drayton, North Dakota area, Scott Weinlaeder doesn’t have as much planted as he’d like to see. Weinlaeder says the area was wet last fall so they were behind from the start. "Some growers left some beets in the ground and they seeded soybeans or wheat into those beets. When it's dry, it's not so bad, but when it gets wet like this I'm not sure how that's going to work," Weinlaeder said, "All the growers want to get their crop planted, it's just a matter of what kind of weather we get to make that advantageous."

Assuming the weather straightens out, Darryl Berg at Walhalla Bean Company says growers priority will be sugarbeets. He’s wondering if any dry edible beans will get planted before June 1. "It's going to be tough. A lot of growers don't have all of their wheat in or their other crops," Berg said, "It's going to be a mad dash that's for sure."

Some Growers Venture Into Their Fields
Fri, 24 May 2013
In the Minot area, Dakota Agronomy Partners agronomist Mike Benjamin says growers are starting to venture back into the field. "We're starting to have a few guys get going again. We got our floaters going again on Thursday. The rain varied from 2 to 6 inches in our trade inches, some fields look like the lake and some are able to go again," Benjamin said, "Hopefully the rain will stay away and we can keep guys rolling." With the crop insurance deadline for corn tomorrow in many locations, Benjamin says some acres are being switched to soybeans or sunflowers.
