We had about an inch of rain in the last week. We started picking corn last Wednesday. Yield for the field we were in was almost 75 bushels less than when it was in corn two years ago. That field is creek bottom ground, and the creek came out a few times and drowned the corn on the bottom out in a few places.
We also did not get the field done as the combine broke down, and it had to go to the dealership to get repaired. We’ve lost four days of good picking weather because of the breakdown. We should have some beans ready in the next week or so. We did get some fieldwork and other odds and ends done while the combine was getting repaired.
I haven’t seen a lot of people harvesting yet. There’s a lot of green corn still. I have seen some beans that had been cut in the last week or so. Have a safe harvest.
