Sorry for no reports for a few weeks. Harvest is around 50-plus percent complete in most parts and some closer to 75 percent. Most corn is wrapping up, and beans are all ready now. Wheat sowing went good, started on the Oct. 10, and you can row it now.

Good run for the week. A few sprinkles Thursday, but other than that, harvest is moving forward. Yields are hanging in there considering the summer. As the hours drag on and daylight gets shorter, take a five-minute break. Accidents happen so quickly.

Wet is the word – more than 4 inches for the week. Harvesting for the week is zero. My estimate is corn is 35 percent and beans around 25 percent. So, there is a lot crop out there. Next concern is how muddy it is and getting the wheat sowed.
