Harvest is wrapping up. Fall tillage and some nitrogen is being done. The countryside can sure change in a month. Overall, crops have been decent. Corn is below the last couple years’ average, but soybeans have been as good or a bit better than the last couple years. I hope to have harvest wrapped up this week.

Very little rain across the area has let soybean and corn harvest progress rapidly. Corn moisture has dropped into the teens, while soybeans remain on the wet side. Overall, yields have been better than expected in the drier parts.
