North Dakotas stealth camping laws are similar to those in other states however farmland and other non-structure areas are not explicitly described.  It lists buildings, occupied structures, storage structures, and areas enclosed or posted to exclude intruders.

You cannot stealth camp in or on any structures, in any area enclosed to exclude intruders, posted areas, or areas where you are otherwise told not to.

You can stealth camp in areas which are not enclosed or posted,  so long as you are not in or on any structures and you have not been told to leave.

You should verify this with your own research including  laws and codes at the city, township, and county levels.
