     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has upheld North Dakota's Depression-era anti-corporate farming law. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland in Bismarck ruled Friday that the law meets constitutional requirements.

    North Dakota Farm Bureau sued in 2016 to do away with the law that voters approved in 1932 to protect the state's family farming heritage. The Farm Bureau and other plaintiffs argued the law limits farmers' business options and interferes with interstate commerce by barring out-of-state corporations from being involved in North Dakota's farm industry.

    Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, North Dakota Farmers Union and the Dakota Resource Council disputed that in their defense of the law. Farmers Union maintains that family farming is the backbone of North Dakota agriculture. The group led the fight to create the corporate farming law in the 1930s.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - More than two dozen projects in North Dakota are sharing in $3 million in federal money aimed at promoting specialty crops.
 
     North Dakota gets money from the federal government to dole out as grants to boost the production and processing of crops such as dry peas, dry beans, lentils and potatoes. The state is among the nation's leaders in producing those crops.
 
     The state Agriculture Department received 42 applications this year. A committee reviewed them, and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring approved 25 and forwarded them to the federal Agriculture Department for final approval.
 
     Grant recipients include North Dakota State University, the National Sunflower Association, the Northern Pulse Growers Association, the Dakota Prairies Resource Conservation and Development Council, and the National Agriculture Genotyping Center.
