Flooding and Heavy Rains Delay Wheat Planting

Hundreds of thousands of acres have gone unplanted due to Montana’s record rains.

Farmers say the point of no return for the number of days required to produce a wheat crop is quickly approaching.

It takes 90 to 120 days to raise a durum wheat crop. Northeastern Montana farmer Gordon Stoner says that the possibility of going to harvest in early October is unsettling with the chance of an early winter kill.

Surging rivers have also caused millions of dollars in damages to irrigation systems.

The Huntley Project’s 458 miles of canals and ditches are not working after May’s floodwaters caused a Pryor Creek to punch a hole through a massive section of the canal.

Manager Dan Vogel expects long-term repairs to cost $2 million.
