  • A Long Harvest Run Without a Rain
    In central North Dakota, Sheridan County Extension Agent Nicole Wardner says the soybean harvest is going forward without interruption. "Ranchers want rain and farmers don't want rain, but, we haven't had a good shot of rain for over four weeks and that has allowed us to have a good run on the soybean harvest." Moisture levels have been very dry. "Some guys are combining early in the morning to avoid the splitting and cracking." Wardner says the pastures have been grazed hard and could use a rain. The soil profile needs a moisture recharge before freeze up.

  • Done with Beans
    J.J. Johnson has wrapped up his soybean harvest in the Oklee, Minnesota area. "We had a pretty decent crop; there were a few pockets that caught some hail, but otherwise, the bean yields were somewhere in the mid-40s." The combine is parked now, but it won’t be long before Johnson will be back into the rest of his row crops. "We have some sunflowers and corn left to be harvested. We had a little bit of frost and that should with the stalks on the corn."

    New Horizons Ag Services grain procurement manager Tom Bovee says the soybean harvest is wrapping up in the Herman and Chokio areas of Minnesota. Yields vary considerably. Regarding corn, Bovee says growers are just starting to open fields. “We have a lot of green snap from high winds and storms that went through. That’s going to affect the yields. The crops all look good from the road, but you never know what you’re going to get until you get into them.”
