Farmers in the Red River Valley have been taking advantage of the great harvesting weather.
Morris-area farmer David Hamblin says the harvest has been going good so far.
"We had a real struggle to the start of the harvest with wet weather and humidity every day and Mother Nature has cooperated the last two weeks and given us some really nice conditions to get started," he said. "We've got our early wheat and canola off. About half of our land was flooded by the Red River so we're done our early seeded stuff and waiting for the later flood land here now."
Hamblin commented on yields numbers.
"They were good. The higher yielding wheat was in the high 80's [bushels per acre] and the red spring's were 70 to 80. Canola was in the low 50's. Certainly nothing to complain about."
He expects to see lower yield numbers on the fields that were planted later due to flooding.
Hamblin says the outlook for his corn and soybeans is also positive.
"We've got some corn that looks really good and hopefully we don't see any frost here for another few weeks and looking forward to seeing what the corn and beans can do. They both look pretty good right now."
Some of the earlier soybeans could be ready by the end of September, while it will likely be mid-October before the corn is ready.
With rain in the forecast for later this week, Hamblin says he might try to push ahead and combine wheat a little bit on the wetter side. He notes the moisture would be helpful for farmers looking to seed fall crops.
