Rain slows beet harvest

Wet weather has slowed the sugar beet harvest in parts of North Dakota.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Wet weather has slowed the sugar beet harvest in parts of North Dakota.

Jerry Christenson with American Crystal Sugar said harvesting is at a standstill south of Highway 2, but conditions are better north of there.

He said the harvest normally takes about three weeks, but could last up to a month this year.

Christenson said rain delays during the harvest aren't that unusual.
