A USDA meteorologist says there are still regions of the U.S. where farmers are having a tough time harvesting crops because of fall weather conditions. Brad Rippey says, “Of the states reporting this week, we still see five percent of the soybeans left in the field as of December 2nd.”
Rippey says the soybean harvest is the big issue. “Kansas and North Dakota, even a little bit more left in Arkansas where 94% of the soybeans have been harvested.”
Rippey says the Dakotas, like some other regions, focused on soybeans first as the weather allowed.
