In the last week, we received 4.2 inches of rain. I’ve heard of pockets of up to 7 inches around Monmouth. We also had hail Friday night. It was a little bigger than dime size, but I heard of areas that had golf ball to tennis ball size hail.
The corn just isn’t drying down. We’ve hand shelled some early corn the last two weeks, and it’s staying right around 26% to 28%. Stock quality is still good right now. Praying it still will be by the end of harvest.
We have some beans that are turning and hopefully will be ready in a couple weeks. This could turn out to be a very tricky harvest with October forecasted to be wetter than normal and corn that won’t dry down. Hope every stays safe this harvest.
