What happened to our nice weather? I was not ready for it to
get this cold yet, but I guess I am never really ready. Harvest continues for
most around here. However, some folks are starting to finish with their harvest.
It has been a mad dash to get the soybeans harvested for
those that still needed to. The weather has not been very friendly for soybean
harvesting lately. Still I think most were able to get finished up this
Corn harvest has been going well around here. Some people
are getting into some drier corn — like 16 percent to 17 percent — but some are
not finding any under 20 percent. The grain elevators have had lines some days.
Yields seem to be dictated more by soil types than anything else. Some areas
have a lot of corn to go, and others have a lot of it harvested.
Lots of tillage, lime, fertilizer and some strip-till
without anhydrous are getting going. Wheat is growing and doing well. I cannot
believe it’s November. Stay safe and have a great week.
