Wishing all a secure and effective harvest!!
Soybean maqui berry farmers happen to be busy handling the aphid pressure. Highway 2 has somewhat been an all natural line this year. Most the fields north of Highway 2 have needed two applications within the last month, where a number of our fields south from the highway haven’t yet been sprayed once. The soybeans look good at this time, but to become excellent we’ll take some moisture within the next handful of days.
Spring wheat is a decent crop for most maqui berry farmers within my area. Fields near Fordville and Park River, N.D., could see some shorter yields because of insufficient rain fall around the lighter soils. In 2016 el born area was the best wheat I’d seen, however when the rain did not be frequently this year, the sandy soil reacts rapidly.
The College of Minnesota’s latest wheat release, Shelly, is within a couple of fields for me personally and seems to possess filled well. It will likely be interesting to determine the way it compares. AgriPro Valda and Ingmar is going to be at the pinnacle too. Ingmar typically is not our prime-yield type, however it looks excellent at this time. We have other varieties, for example Rollag, Linkert, Mayville and Croplan 3419, and many of them look good within the field. It’ll simply come lower to the way they yield and just what amounts of protein we finish track of.
From College of Minnesota-Crookston, I’d Jeremy Schonauer, Wyatt Huso, Logan Huso and Kamron Matejcek. In the Lake Region Condition Precision Ag Enter in Demons Lake, I’d Adam Olhauser. Brent Messner from McVille, N.D., is Huso Crop Consulting’s primary worker and crop scout. I’d like by way of thanking Ryan Twedt, an earlier college intern who could help if needed throughout the season.
Canola swathing is going to start for many of my maqui berry farmers. This season I’ve got a couple of more acres of individuals attempting to direct harvest canola, plus they selected a great year to get it done. Canola is standing well and appears very even just in its maturing process when compared with previous years.
