(Des Lacs, ND) -- North Dakota farmers are planting despite widespread drought. Farmers say more moisture is needed at the right time to keep crops growing. Soybean growers are hoping for any moisture, but are depending on August rains to bring in a bumper crop. Wheat is also being put in, and some farmers are growing flax and sunflowers. Farmers say all the crops would benefit from some immediate moisture so seeds can germinate.
