FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Wheat production in North Dakota this year is up 29 percent from 2013, to 352 million bushels.

The Agriculture Department’s small grain production report estimates spring wheat production in the state up 25 percent, durum wheat up 4 percent and winter wheat up 216 percent.

Winter wheat is not a major crop in North Dakota, and subject to wide swings in production. Spring wheat is the state’s staple crop. Production this year is estimated at 294 million bushels.

North Dakota barley production this year is pegged at 37 million bushels, down 19 percent. Oat production is at 8.4 million bushels, up just slightly over the year.
