What will the harvest bring in?
Harvest has begun in the area, and early reports are encouraging.
The grain is still drier than most had anticipated, and yields are somewhat better.
Non-irrigated sandier soils are yielding between 70- and 140 bushels-per-acre field averages with yield spikes considerably higher. Moisture content for early corn is anywhere from 25 to 33 percent from the combine. Standability so far has been OK, but a number of plants have either shown stalk or root weakness. Farmers may start harvesting early maturing hybrids planted during the first week of May on some of our better soils. I anticipate very strong yields from these fields and am anxious to hear yield and moisture results as soon as possible.
