Crop Tour Casts Doubt on Forecast for Record U.S. Spring Wheat

Survey of fields in North Dakota shows crop may not match USDA forecast, while Saskatchewan tour is bullish for canola

Early results from the North Dakota leg of a crop tour organized by the Wheat Quality Council have cast doubt on whether the U.S. Department of Agriculture's forecast for an all-time high national spring wheat yield will actually prevail.
