Jacob Streitmatter

Jacob Streitmatter farms near Princeville and raises corn and soybeans.


Overall, it has been a successful and bountiful harvest. The crops have disappeared across the countryside turning into mountains of corn at some elevators. I hope to have harvest wrapped up by Thanksgiving. Fall tillage is taking place, and lots of anhydrous ammonia is being applied. The corn crop has been above expectations, running in the top two, highest-yielding years. Soybeans, on the other hand, were just average -- nothing too exciting. Have a great winter.


No report


Rain showers and foggy mornings have not been ideal to finish soybeans. Corn is disappearing fast with the majority of the crops harvested.


Harvest has progressed very well in the last few weeks despite the rain. The corn crop has been very good overall. Early-planted soybeans have done very well, but later-planted beans have been a disappointment. Hopefully, next week all the soybeans will be harvested in my area.
