Wheat predictio Last year, western North Dakota's wheat crop was less amber waves of grain and more round bales of cattle feed after a drought devastated field after field. As the Wheat Quality Council pre- pares to return to the state Monday for a tour of annual plantings, participants likely will find a much different scene from last year. And one look at Thurs- day's U.S. Drought Monitor map ex- plains why. The U.S. Drought Monitor's North Dakota drought map showed dry to moderate drought conditions in north central and southeast North Dakota Thursday. Minus a few counties in north cen- tral North Dakota and southeast North Dakota reporting abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions, the state has shaken the extreme to exceptional drought that plagued its western haft. "The general discussion has been it's a pretty good wheat crop," said Jim Peterson, the North Dakota Wheat Commission's policy and marketing director. Peterson said the tour includes par- ticipation for various wheat groups in the state but is largely intended for cor- porations, such as CHS and Cargill, and milling and baking companies to view the size and quality of the crop in order to make buying decisions. Interest in the tour spiked last year over fears of limited availability of spring wheat, Peterson said. There was some concern in May as dry conditions persisted and farmers got into fields later. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, early season estimates made by area producers put the aver- age predicted yield around 48 bushels per acre, which would tie record pro- duction from 2013. Durum yield predictions in north- west and southwest counties were around 39 bushels per acre, compared ns are steep contrast to 2017 to 24 a year ago. and dry conditions came in around the The one missing ingredient this European Union and Australia. year has been cooler temperatures, The world market did show some which help the cool season crop thrive, hope Thursday as reports of drought The high humidity increases chances and dry conditions came in around the of disease.
