June 29, 2012

Today will be hot and dry with a high temperature of around 89 degrees, but the area will see a 20 percent chance of rain beginning this evening that will carry over to a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms throughout the day on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service graphical forecast data.

Vince Godon, a NWS meteorologist in Grand Forks, said if the weather does get wet on Saturday it’s hard to tell how much will fall.

Ellen Bjelland, Barnes County’s 4-H extension agent, said that soybean farmers can nominate their favorite non-profit organizations to receive grants from Monsanto. Thirty-nine states participate in this grant program, and of all the nominations that come from a particular county, Monsanto selects one to receive the grant.

Bjelland said Monsanto is the largest chemical company in the world. They are the company that produces Roundup herbicide products.
