(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota farmers are expecting a good season, despite delays in planting. Farmers say canola and wheat are both looking good, and that there should be a substantial harvest. North Dakota State University Research Agronomist Eric Eriksmoen says continued hail could damage crops at this point in the growing process.
As of Monday’s USDA Crop Progress Report, 70% of the state’s corn crop is in good to excellent condition while soybeans are 67% good to excellent. Spring wheat in North Dakota is 69% good to excellent with almost all of the crop emerged.
