With heavy rains bearing down on the region, farmers are scrambling to get as much of their crops harvested as they can, before the moisture shuts them down.
Here in Mountrail County, south of Blaisdel, two combines were busy this afternoon, trying to finish up this field.
Mountrail County Ag Agent Jim Hennessey says farmers are finding good yields on barley and winter wheat - although there have been some problems with vomitoxin...even in crops that had been sprayed to prevent the infection.
In Ward County - just east of Berthold - this field of canola was being cut down to begin the dry-down process.
Warren Fegley was visiting from Idaho, helping his brother Greg by driving this tractor.
He says he loves being on the farm where he grew up when harvest time comes around.
(Warren Fegley, Harvesting Canola Near Berthold) "It's going pretty well, seems to be pretty tall. Greg said it was good so I'm helping out. It looks good, it's thick, and I guess he cuts it a little early because then it will dry and won't shell out."
Fegley says it will be another week or more before other crops on his brother's farm are ready for harvest.
