Record June Cold Impacts North Dakota Wheat Planting

US farmers hoping to wrap up spring wheat plantings in North Dakota were greeted with weekend highs in only the 30’s and 40’s (ºF), compared to normal highs in the mid 70’s, say StormX.

Indeed, in Dickinson located in southwestern North Dakota, heavy snow was reported on Saturday morning as several cities in the state reported record low maximum temperatures for the month of June over the weekend.

It's going to be the end of the week before normal June temperature return, they say. By then it will surely be to late for anyone to seriously consider wheat planting? Tonight the USDA will report on spring wheat seeding progress across the US.
