     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Agriculture Department has scheduled this year's round of Project Safe Send chemical collections around North Dakota.
 
     The program gives state residents a way to dispose of unusable herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides free of charge. It's funded by fees that pesticide manufacturers pay to register their products in North Dakota.
 
     This year's collections begin July 8 in Forman and end July 25 in Hillsboro. In between there will be collections in Edgeley, Steele, Mott, Belfield, Bowbells, Garrison, Rugby, Carrington, Michigan and Grafton. Details can be found at http://www.nd.gov/ndda/ .
 
     Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says that over the past 22 years, thousands of people have brought more than 3 million pounds of chemicals to Project Safe Send sites.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's winter wheat crop is expected to be up dramatically over last year.
 
     The Agriculture department pegs this year's crop at 33.1 million bushels, more than double last year's crop, thanks mostly to a big jump in acres. The North Dakota Wheat Commission says a large number of prevented planting acres in spring 2013 and favorable fall planting conditions were reasons for the jump in acres.
 
     Spring wheat is North Dakota's staple crop. Farmers are expected to plant 5.9 million acres of spring wheat this year. They're expected to harvest about 720,000 acres of winter wheat.
