Winter Wheat Emerging

News

Remember February?
It was close to record cold in some parts of western North Dakota.
And that had some farmers worried about the winter wheat that was in the ground – waiting for spring to start growing.

At the North Central Research Extension Center near Minot, Research Agronomist Eric Eriksmoen says it appears the crop has made it through the cold in good shape.

(Eric Eriksmoen, NDSU Research Agronomist) “We had a brutal winter. Bitterly cold for long periods of time. But I think we had enough snow that we protected the winter wheat crop and it looks really good.”

The USDA rates about two-thirds of the state’s winter wheat crop as good to excellent.
