Individuals possibly impersonating state employees in order to take photos and samples of grain have been reported.

“We’ve received calls from concerned farmers about individuals acting in an official capacity, taking photos and samples of their wheat fields,” North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said in a statement. “It was perceived that this individual was from state government, but after inquiries into various state agencies, including NDSU, we’ve not found authorization for any work of this type.”
