First Frosting in ND and MN


Farmers in North Dakota and Minnesota have not had the best luck with weather this season.
After a summer of abnormally high levels of rain, farmers are now facing frost damage to their crops. Corn and bean farmers in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota have been most affected by the condition.
These crops are already behind because of late planting. The North Dakota Corn Growers Association reported that although there was frost present, it was not “killing frost.” If temperatures would have dipped below 28 degrees farmers would be in worst shape.
Most officials predict that the crops will be left undamaged, but corn crops are still three to four weeks behind development.
