BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Meetings to help farmers make better management decisions for their 2013 crops are getting under way in western and central North Dakota.

There will be a Feb. 6 workshop at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks and a Feb. 7 workshop at the Courtyard by Marriott in Moorhead, Minn., across the Red River from Fargo.
