Harvest continues to roll along here in Bureau County. There’s light at the end of the tunnel! If the weather cooperates throughout the next week, most guys should be nearing the end.
Here’s a look at what our guys are seeing in the field:
Gary Campbell: Much of Western Ohio received 2 inches of rain last Thursday, so just getting rolling again. Corn yields are in the 170-200 bushel range, and beans 50-70, depending on severity of the summer drought and August storm damage. Still waiting on double-crop beans to mature, but most should do well. The warm temps and moisture has been perfect for Residuce® applications, residue recycling and cover crops are off to a great start!
Mike Wyatt: We are having ideal weather for fall harvest in Nebraska. Day time temps are in the upper 60’s and the nights are in the low 30’s. No rain and no rain forecasted. Harvest for the remaining fall crops is progressing rapidly. Dry land corn yields cover a range from 80 to 130 bushel per acre. Irrigated corn yields are 200 to 250 bushel per acre. Popcorn yielding around 5500 lbs per acre. Sugar beets are close to 40 tons per acre, no report on sugar content.
Galen Nissley (Honeyville): Most farmers have switched to beans in Northern Indiana. We have a lot of heavy soil in this area, so moisture has been an issue. The temperature has been in the 40’s and today is cold, rainy, and windy. We have a couple nicer days predicted so farmers will be able to continue with harvest.
Tom Adams (Maraseed Inc.): The weather is very cool in New York, 40’s and 50’s. We got 1.5 inches of rain last week, which was much needed. Some guys are starting to combine corn and soybeans. Silage and hay is done. It’ll be a couple weeks before harvest is done.
Eric Johnston: Farmers made progress getting the crops harvested in North Central Illinois this past week. A customer’s soybeans made over 90 bushels/acre. He said he had never seen the yield monitor go above 100 so many times harvesting soybeans. Our Residuce® and some of our foliar products were applied on that particular field.
And with that, here’s to another week of harvest.
