The State Fair is not even over and already there are combines rolling in north central North Dakota fields.
That's how Dakota Midland Grain's Surrey Manager describes his amazement at what's happening right now.
Semi trucks full of spring wheat are rolling into elevators around the area - bringing in what's turning out to be a huge crop.
(Ted Warehime, Dakota Midland Grain-Surrey) "Yields are good, quality is excellent, farmers seem to be happy. Hopefully the yields will hold up - they've been running somewhere in the 45 to 80 bushel range."
Warehime says he expects his elevator to take in about two million bushels of winter wheat this year - double the normal amount.
He says that's due to a couple of things...the wet conditions last year that caused farmers to plant winter wheat in the fall as a way to use up excess moisture.
And, the yields that have, in some reports, reached over 100 bushels per acre.
