It will surprise no one that the most asked question of me this week has been when do you think we can get back out in the field.  It has clearly been a wet week with many locations across northern North Dakota recording near or over 1” of moisture this week.  I have to say moisture as much of that liquid came from snow and not rain.  The temperatures will probably still be below normal, but it appears drier next week and with the higher sun angle this time of year, it will allow for some drying.  The soil types you deal with will as always play a significant roll into how fast you will be able to return to the fields but next week looks promising.
