According to extension agents, a few barley contracts didn`t make it because the protein content was too high. They say winter wheat is looking good, as well as canola, flax and durum.
But the biggest hurdle this year has been the lack of moisture.
"For those corn and soy bean crops, that`s just really hurt them. We would have liked to see more moisture. And then for some of those barley crops that weren`t as far along as some of the earlier ones, that moisture was definitely needed and they didn`t get it at that crucial time," said NDSU Extension Agent KaSondra Staiger.
Staiger expects corn and soybeans to be harvested in September or early October.
