BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Low commodity prices paint a bleak outlook for North Dakota farmers hoping to profit from crops next year.

North Dakota State University farm management specialist Andy Swenson says nearly all crops project a loss in 2016.

Swenson says costs for fuel, seed, insurance and land rents are generally expected to be lower next year than in 2015.

But Swenson says low crop prices will more than offset those savings.
