Corn, the star of Upper Midwest agriculture in recent years, won't shine quite so brightly in the 2015 growing season, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts. But some small-market crops, particularly lentils and dry peas, are expected to take on extra luster this year.
Keith Deutsch knows that part of his job is promoting his crop. He knows he needs to be realistic, too. “It just doesn’t look too good for this spring,” says Deutsch. a Plaza, N.D., farmer and president of the U.S. Durum Growers Association. “It may sound strange for someone from the association to be saying that.” But Deutsch and other area durum boosters say they have to acknowledge the obvious.
