  • Wheat Harvest Progressing
    Wheat harvest is moving forward for farmers near Fordville, North Dakota. Dennis Dalbey, manager, Fordville Co-op Marketing Association, says yields vary, but protein levels have been high. "The heat and drought got to some of the early stuff, ranging anywhere from 25-to-27 bushels, 17-to-18 (percent) protein and 54.5 pounds. Other wheat has been 35 bushel with high weight and protein." Dalbey says wheat is having trouble curing due to cool temperatures and damp mornings. "There's some that was sprayed 20 days ago and still giving farmers trouble." RRFN's Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc.
  • MN, ND, SD Farm Computer Use Tops National Average
    Seventy-eight percent of Minnesota and North Dakota farms have access to computers. In South Dakota, that figure is 75 percent. All three states are above the national average of 73 percent. Forty-seven percent of computer use nationwide is for farm business, up four percentage points from 2015. Nearly 40 percent of farmers across the U.S. used a tablet or smartphone for farm business.

  • Western Leg of the Crop Tour Visits SD and NE Today
    Pro Farmer editorial director Chip Flory is leading the western leg of the Midwest Crop Tour. That group will move from southern South Dakota into Nebraska. Flory says some routes will get into the drought areas. "Most of the routes will be east of that. We'll also start getting into some of that good irrigated Nebraska corn by the time we get into Grand Island this afternoon." In addition to the corn, Flory is very interested in what is happening with the pod-set with soybeans. "We got a pretty good number from USDA on August 1 and we're going to go out and see if it is there." This is the 25th year for this crop tour
  • An Above-Average Barley Crop
    Barley acres are down in North Dakota, but this year’s crop is looking to be above average. Mark Huso, who leads Huso Crop Consulting in Lakota, says harvest is about halfway done in the area. However, growers who did not swath barley are having trouble drying it down. “The barley is mostly above average, 85 to 100 bushel per acre yields.” Huso also anticipates a nice wheat crop. With just a handful of wheat acres taken off between the Lakota and Fordville areas, he says the protein and test weight numbers recorded thus far are good. Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by Dairyland Seed.
  • Heat and Dryness Concerning for Canola
    Bottineau, North Dakota farmer Wally Brandjord has started his harvest. “We’ve heard good oat yields in the area. Ours weren’t there, but we’re okay.” Brandjord says it will be interesting to see how the later season crops handled the heat and drought stress. Brandjord has begun cutting some canola. “We had a nice stand, but I’m just a little concerned about the heat and dryness.” Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by AgCountry Farm Credit Services.

    American Crystal Sugar began pre-pile harvest last Tuesday before being slowed by rain. General Agronomist Tyler Grove says the beets look good. “Sugar content has been good. Better than average at this point, considering these are coming in at headlands. Yield is tough to figure out right now, in comparison to our field samples. So far, so good.”
