FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Depressed farm prices are leading to more layoffs at Fargo’s Case-New Holland manufacturing plant.

Parent company CNH Industrial America says about 70 full-time workers will be laid off as a result of poor market conditions.

KFGO radio reports (https://bit.ly/1nTlA9y ) that employees were notified Thursday. Company spokeswoman Kathleen Prause says the layoffs will occur early next month.

More than 260 workers at the plant have been laid off in five rounds of cutbacks since November 2014.

The Fargo plant is one of CNH Industrial’s two major North American manufacturing plants. It makes tractors and payloaders.
