  • More of a Normal Blend
    North Star Ag Services crop consultant Scott Edgar estimates the growers he works with have planted 20 percent more wheat than last year. After getting their intended wheat acres seeded, Edgar thinks farmers didn’t want to sit and wait to plant beans. “People were on the fence waiting for soybeans and finally decided they had more fields they could put some wheat in. There was such a gap between our early wheat acres and our soybean acres that it seems like people snuck a few more wheat acres in up here. It was a nice surprise because it was going to be so heavy on soybean acres. It got to be more of a normal blend.”
  • Evaluating Canola After the Frost
    Kyle Rollness with Bayer CropScience has been busy evaluating canola stands following freezing temperatures earlier this month. “We’re seeing everything from fields that look pretty good to fields that are a little rough. The frost definitely took a toll on the crop. I think probably as much of the damage came from the wind as the cold temperatures.” Rollness says there is a lot of indecision right now. “Growers need to have a good crop to be successful. With some of these marginal stands, the question is if they can accomplish that good crop.”
  • Replanted Some Canola by Langdon
    When RRFN caught up with Langdon, North Dakota farmer Kevin Waslaski on Tuesday, he was in the final stretch of planting his crop. He said did have to replant some of his canola. “The frost did hurt it. On the fields that were seeded north-south, the wind really did some damage there.” Waslaski said with all the cold weather, crop emergence has been slow.

  • Planting is Ahead of Last Year for Lessard
    Farmers near Grafton, in northeast North Dakota, are just getting a good start on planting their dry edible beans. RRFN talked to Lee Lessard Wednesday. “We’re trying to keep up with the dry ground. We had five inches of rain, so it’s coming around slowly. If we miss this next rain, the first part of the week we’ll be done.” Lessard says he’s still ahead of last year’s planting pace. “I think I was just finishing up the beets last year at this time. I didn’t start planting beans until June last year.”
  • Planting is on the Home Stretch
    Rugby, North Dakota farmer Steve Fritel told RRFN on Tuesday that his spring planting is on the home stretch. “We’re working on the pinto beans. We have less corn this year, a few more soybeans, a few more pinto beans and a little more wheat.” Fritel says the crop has been slow to emerge but it looks ok.
