  • Wrapping Up #Plant17
    Wally Branjord is trying to wrap up planting near Bottineau, North Dakota. There hasn't been significant changes in the normal crop rotation, but Branjord did plant more durum. There is also more corn and soybean acreage in his area of the state. "There was a price difference between wheat and durum this year. The  barley acres are down to almost nothing right now. The corn is starting to pop through." Listen to RRFN's #CropWatch17 coverage. This coverage brought to you, in part, by DuPont Pioneer.
  • Welcome Moisture
    Farmers in north central North Dakota are making good planting progress. Rugby farmer Steve Fritel says moisture is welcome. “We have excellent subsoil moisture, but the top is dry. It’s a challenge getting the seed placed at the right depth so it’s in good moisture, but not too deep. Every field we have, we constantly check the depth. The corn is peeking through and soybeans are still under the soil. Emergence looks alright.” RRFN's Crop Watch coverage is sponsored, in part, by Syngenta Sugarbeets and Hilleshog. 
  • Send the Sun
    David Thompson farms north of East Grand Forks, Minnesota. The sugarbeets and wheat looks good coming out of the ground, but Thompson wants some sunshine. “We just need some heat right now, consistent days of sunshine and warm temperatures to get this ground warmed up." Thompson says he hasn’t seen much weed pressure.
  • Lots of Soybeans
    Farmers in the Minot area are getting close to wrapping up spring planting. Dakota Agronomy Partners Seed Sales Manager Doug Naze is expecting more soybeans. “I can’t say for sure until the dust settles. It feels like there was a lot more soybeans in at the end, on the undecided acres anyway. There will be lots of soybeans.”
  • Dry Bean Scene
    The Dry Bean Scene is on the air, with information about the dry edible bean industry in the Northarvest region. This broadcast airs each Friday at 12:37 PM. 
  • Dry Conditions in the West
    National Sunflower Association Executive Director John Sandbacken says the western part of North Dakota is really dry. “When you look at the drought monitor map, if you take Highway 83 west, it’s really drying out. Some of those areas are in the D2 drought category. We could use moisture to get this crop going along.” Sandbacken thinks we’ll have about 70 percent of the sunflower crop planted at the end of the month, with an expected completion date in the first week in June.
