The weather here in Bureau County, Illinois continues to be absolutely gorgeous! Even for November. Blue skies and sunshine make for a happy husband! Some guys are finishing up with harvest while others are starting field work around these parts.
Here’s a look at what our guys have been seeing in the field:
Galen Nissley (Honeyville): It’s been on the wet side here in Northern Indiana. Harvest is about done and some guys are working ground. We are predicted to be down to 28 degrees by Friday.
Eric Johnston: Harvest season is winding down for most farmers here in North Central Illinois. Some have finished, while others have been making good progress with the nice weather we’ve had. The nice weather has also been ideal for growers to apply Residuce®.
Tom Adams (Maraseed Inc.): Our weather has been very unseasonably warm with good rains in New York; supposed to get colder this weekend. Corn is pretty much done, a few fields around that are still standing. But for the most part, they are finished. Cover crops are in and up. Saw some 5th cutting being chopped yesterday, which is pretty unusual for that to happen. All in all, we have enjoyed a beautiful fall, with good crops in spite of our very dry and hot summer.
