Rain finally came to the area, only several weeks short. But it is good we got some. Harvest is progressing well across the country. Yields have been better than I expected.

Harvest is progressing. A lot of soybeans have been harvested, and yield is better than I expected. Corn is good, also, just high moisture. It is very dry. Some rain would be beneficial, but it is also very convenient to harvest with dry conditions.

Harvest is in full swing across the country. Soybeans are the main crop getting harvested, but the last few days, cornfields are disappearing, too. Yields have been better than I expected with minimal rain in August and none in September. Evidently, the cool weather saved the crop.
