West central Minn.crops largely escape drought
The fall harvest probably isn't a bin-buster for farmers in west central Minnesota, but area producers are expecting to bring in respectable corn and soybean yields.
Noah Hultgren, who is a partner with his family members in Hultgren Farms near Willmar, expects a "pretty good" corn crop and that the corn harvest could begin the first week of September, thanks to early planting dates. He figures the crop could bring in up to 170 to 180 bushels per acre.
