Cold, Wet Weather Hurts Some North Dakota Producers

Cold, wet weather over the past week has hurt some farmers and ranchers in North Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop progress report that frost damaged some canola and soybean crops, and some sugar beet crops in the northern Red River Valley will need to be replanted due to either frost or flooding.

There also were some reports of calf and lamb losses due to the cold and wet conditions.

Ranchers in the state are busy moving herds to summer pastures. Farmers are wrapping up the seeding of small grains, with only about 12 percent of the durum wheat crop still to be seeded. Potato planting is about two-thirds done.
