Farmers who need custom combining and combiners looking for a job may call (701) 425-8454. Your name and information will be entered into the Harvest Hotline database to be matched up with other callers.
North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) employees will answer calls to the hotline weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Callers can also leave a message on evenings and weekends. There is also a Harvest Hotline Map Site that shows the combiners information. The service is free of charge.
Both farmers and combiners are already calling in,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said.
