No matter when they were planted, soybeans in the southern part of Illinois are looking good as harvest draws near.

Jason Harmon is ready to see the 2021 Indiana corn crop. “I am excited for this harvest. I think a lot of people are. I want to see these combines start going and see what we have on this crop for 2021,” said Harmon, DEKALB Asgrow technical agronomist for northern Indiana.

During the past several weeks, it appeared that soybean growth had stalled out, but some timely rains and warm weather have caused quick growth and brought on some better color in the plants. Currently, soybean field conditions in Indiana have turned around.

There’s a dividing line in Illinois that has nothing to do with baseball or football. It deals with disease.
