Finished Harvest in ND
Fri, 19 Sep 2014

Custom harvester Taff Hughes says they finished combining between Garrison and Parshall, North Dakota Thursday. “We’ve been combining durum and canola. Quality on the canola was good. The yields were a little down, close to the ton range. The quality on the durum wasn’t good. Test weights were light. Then we had some rain that really took the color out of it. Some of the last stuff we did had a little color, but the test weight was really light. We didn’t see any disease issues.” Hughes is heading home to the Ellinwood, Kansas area to start on corn and soybeans. “I think we have an average or maybe a good average crop. We’ve done about 100 acres of corn and it yielded really well. We’re not sure on the soybeans. There’s a little concern on some frost damage.”
Field Drying vs Bin Drying
Fri, 19 Sep 2014

DuPont Pioneer field agronomist Derek Crompton is cautioning farmers to take a good look at their corn before they decide to leave it in the field to dry rather than drying it in a bin. “There is a lot of root rot starting to show up in corn. If you’re considering leaving the corn through harvest, take a look at stalk integrity. As we get closer to combines starting to roll, weigh that out. Is it worth leaving the corn in the field to dry or is it worth spending a little bit to get it out of the field before it drops on the ground?”
Harvest Slowly Progressing Near Minot
Fri, 19 Sep 2014

Dakota Agronomy Partners seed plant manager Lyle Johnson says harvest in the Minot, North Dakota area is slowly progressing. “I would say harvest is about half to 60 percent done. The condition of the crops is really good. There is some talk about vomitoxin out there. Hopefully the weather holds up so these guys can start on the soybeans.” Johnson says the Minot area escaped any major frost damage.
Store the 2014 Corn and Soybeans
Fri, 19 Sep 2014

Farmers who have un-priced corn and soybeans are being encouraged to store this year’s crop as we move into harvest. North Dakota State University Extension crops marketing economist Frayne Olson says look at corn’s risk and reward for storing the crop. “For right now, let’s find a home for it. One of the challenges we will potentially be facing is differences in quality. There might be some test weight differentials depending on if guys have had a frost or not. In my view if you look at downward risk in corn, we’re going to be reaching the harvest lows fairly soon. Soybeans, we do have a little more down side risk.” Olson says even with a little more down side risk, store the soybeans too.
