Soybean Yields Good, But Not Great
Tue, 21 Oct 2014
Envision Co-op agronomy manager Carter Medalen says soybean yields have been good but not great in the Rugby, North Dakota area. “Our best yields look like they were at the front side of the planting season. I know we went through a dry stretch and I think that stole a little bit of that later crop’s thunder. Also, they were a little behind when we got our frost so I think they touched up at the top of the plant and didn’t finish off the pods at the top.” Medalen thinks most farmers will wait to harvest corn until it dries down some more.
Southern Minn Wraps Up Sugarbeet Harvest
Mon, 20 Oct 2014
Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative finished harvest Monday. Vice President of Agriculture Todd Geselius says favorable weather made for a good harvest, but beet yields were not quite as big as expected. “When we started getting in to some of these fields we thought were the mid to upper-20s, they turned out to be lower to mid-20s. Our tons this year are going to come in right around 22 tons.” Geselius says sugar content is a little low. “We’re going to end up around 15.85 or 15.9.”
Hail and Wet Ground Lower Yields by Hillsboro
Tue, 21 Oct 2014
Hillsboro, North Dakota farmer Mike Beltz was harvesting his last quarter of soybeans Monday. “Most guys are on their last third or fourth and some guys are done. The twist with us is we had hail that set us back. We had to wait for it to freeze and then dry down.” Beltz says his soybean yields are below average, due to the combination of late planting, saturated ground and hail. For those same reasons, he is not that optimistic about his corn crop. “The question is going to be what it’s going to average for test weight. It’ll be light. It’s a matter of how light.”
