USDA says eight percent of corn and two percent of soybeans still need to be harvested in the country.
The weather does not help and continues to be a focus in the Northern Plains. Farmers in North Dakota saw dangerously low temperatures over the weekend. It’s one problem after the next as the state’s farmers try to harvest standing corn.
Chase Dewitz, a farmer from Sterling, North Dakota, is one farmer who still has to harvest corn. He wants to get his entire corn crop harvested before spring. Even though he’s not harvesting today, Dewitz hopes to pick up again in the combine when temperatures climb higher.
