Rainfall Creates Harvest Challenges

Over summer many areas of Minnesota received high amounts of rainfall and that continued into the fall harvest season. Some farmers are having a hard time getting combines into fields to harvest. Others are concerned about crop drying needs this may cause.

Excessive rainfall continued through September which can be seen in this MPR news story. This all starts to work against farmers as they labor to get crops harvested before the seasons change and snow falls. While there should still be time to complete harvest we never know with Minnesota weather.
