It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in north central Illinois. Harvest is still rolling along. Folks seem to be making good progress and with little to no rain in the 7-day forecast, odds are pretty good, they’ll get a lot done through the weekend.
Here’s a look at what our guys are seeing in the field:
Mike Wyatt: Fall weather is upon us. Day time high’s of eighty degrees, night’s drop down to low thirties. We have had no precipitation and none in the forecast for the next seven days. Good harvest weather in Nebraska!
Ken Musselman: There is a fair amount harvested in Iowa, however, there are some delays as the rains ranged from .5-16 inches last week. There’s lots of variability in soil conditions, but I have heard there are a lot of 70-80 bushel beans.
Gary Campbell: Heavy rain and flooding for the last month has made corn silage and hay cutting a real struggle for many in Western Wisconsin. Edible bean growers are waiting for fields to dry to begin harvest.
Ray Roettger: We just got some rain in Southern Indiana, which has been good for late beans.
And with that, here’s to another week of harvest!
