North Dakota's Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has activated the North Dakota Harvest Hotline.
The harvest hotline connects North Dakota growers with custom harvesters. "If you need someone to combine your fields, or if you are a harvester looking for a job, call us at (701) 328-2391," said Goehring in a press release. "We will put your name in the Harvest Hotline database and match you up with other callers."
The hotline is open to calls weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Evening and weekend callers can leave a message. The service is free of charge.
"Farmers and combiners are already calling in," Goehring said. "Although the crop season is running late, the small grains harvest will soon be getting underway."
The North Dakota Harvest was established in 1992 when poor weather conditions caused a heavy demand for custom combiners and has been offered every year since.
