Experts: So far, so good for canola, durum harvest


Although southwest North Dakota's grain harvest is behind where it was in 2012, experts are calling this year's crop a success to date.

"What we're seeing is a lot of crop that's ready right now," said Scranton Equity Grain Division Manager Mike Wedwick. "With a better, warmer, dryer forecast of late, I think that's making people a little less edgy. We've been combining spring wheat for about a week and yields have all been good -- we're averaging 40 to 60 bushel wheat."
