Mark Huso / Special to Agweek
February is a busy month as we are steadily meeting with farmers and discussing our 2019 plans. The review of 2018 is also very important as we often move so fast some of the successes and failures become forgotten.
Yes it's cold outside, but it's warm in a meeting room. December has already given many opportunities for farmers to get together with events such as the Ag Expo at the Fargodome, Canola day in Langdon, N.D., Prairie Grains Conference, The Conservation Tillage Conference, and Farmer 2 Farmer in Omaha, Neb. I've been able to attend three of these events and I'm certain there were other types of meetings also attended by groups of farmers
LAKOTA, N.D.—Harvest is still rolling for many farmers. Mother Nature has hit the brakes more than a few times throughout October and into November during this fall harvest run. In October, we dealt with two different snows that dropped up to 8 and 14 inches. When that happened there were many acres of soybeans, edible beans, sunflowers, and corn. After the snow melted, we were granted with some favorable weather that let us get majority of the sunflowers, edible beans, soybeans, but not all, and put a nice dent into some of the corn acres.
