North Dakota’s Early Spring Wheat Harvest Looking Good

Spring Wheat harvesters in North Dakota just getting started are seeing a better crop than anticipated.  North Dakota Wheat Commission Marketing Specialist Erica Olson says statewide yields so far are looking very good.

She says they’ve hosted several trade teams this year, the most recent one coming from Japan, one of the state’s best customers.
