The harvest wrap-up is fully under way with a few fields left to finish. Cover crops, spraying and fertilizer have taken center stage, and it looks like everyone is keeping busy before the next big weather change. So far, it looks like next year is going to get off to a good start.


No report


A decent week of progress last week. Not ideal for soybean harvest, but combines did roll between bouts of moisture (dew, fog, general dampness). Corn harvest made some major strides with several finishing or getting close. Looks like it's about time to start on next year’s crop, as temps are dropping below freezing for the first time.


A solid week of weather kept machines rolling. Corn is closing in on the halfway point, while soybean fields are closer to 75 percent. With soybeans starting to wrap up, attention is going to be placed fully on corn, so progress is going to shift quickly. Looks like another week will have some starting to wrap this harvest up.
