Farmers in North Dakota and South Dakota woke up to a dismal sight on Wednesday; more than 5 inches of snow blanketed much of the region.

Farmers in North Dakota and South Dakota woke up to a dismal sight on Wednesday; more than 5 inches of snow blanketed much of the region, and the snow keeps falling. In their Monday Crop Progress report, USDA noted only 8% of North Dakota’s corn and 34% of the state’s soybeans had been harvested. The photos are as devastating as the snow will likely be to the crops.

  Hmmm... Thanks a lot, Gary, from Ames IA. Would love to raise wheat if it penciled in a profit. Just trying to make a living. Oh, and by the way, we are not supposed to have winter in early October, even here on the northern plains.

  You should have stuck to growing wheat. The Dakotas have added glut to the corn and soybean markets. You would have been done by now. Only yourself to blame. Guess you forgot when winter comes.
