We only received 0.2” of rain at my house in the last week. Finally got the combine back and continued picking corn. Corn yields have been 10 to 15 bushels lower than we expected so far this year. We finished up one field that the wind had blown down the corn in some parts of the field and leaning in most of the field. It was definitely slow going. I think we probably have one more field that might be down in parts of the field.
We switched to beans on Monday, and the first couple fields of beans have been 5 to 10 bushels better than we expected. We did see a lot of three-bean pods with two full beans and the third one shriveled up. Hopefully, we will continue to have decent beans for the rest of harvest.
I have heard some close calls with equipment on the roads, so please be safe out there.
