(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota farmers are expecting a good season, despite delays in planting.

Farmers say canola and wheat are both looking good, and that there should be a substantial harvest.

North Dakota State University Research Agronomist Eric Eriksmoen says continued hail could damage crops at this point in the growing process.

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture says 90 percent of the state is made up of farms and ranches.
