FARGO, N.D. — Lentil acreage in North Dakota is expected to set a record for the second consecutive year.

The Agriculture Department on Friday pegged the crop at 240,000 acres, up from 165,000 acres last year.

In 1998, when lentil acres were first tracked, only 22,000 were planted in North Dakota.

This year’s dry edible pea crop in North Dakota is projected to be unchanged from last year, at 490,000 acres. The state record high was set in 2006 at 610,000 acres.
