BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Snow in early October and early December is pushing the fall harvest of some row crops in the Dakotas into the winter months.

National Agricultural Statistics Service North Dakota Director Darin Jantzi says his office has received reports that farmers might be forced to leave some corn and sunflower crops in the field until the snow melts in the spring.

North Dakota corn farmer Mike Clemens says he knows of some producers with corn still in the field, and spring harvesting could be a reality for some of them.

South Dakota sunflower farmer Tom Young says he thinks sunflower producers will be able to get the rest of that crop in. Sunflowers are taller than corn and can be harvested all winter long if weather permits.
