The drought an hot weather in August smoked the crops around the cedar falls area. Have seen 3 fields picked already. Just wondering what everyone else is seeing in there part of the state
When you have 200+ bushel corn standing good and moisture is at 17-18% you harvest. Why wait till snow or winter hits or a big windstorm nocks it down. Good weather now, fields are dry so not making tracks, and plans to finish harvest early leads to more time available to bowhunt this fall.I'm no farmer for sure, so can someone answer a question for me please? In a dry year, with a dry forecast, what is the reason for pulling your corn so early at anything above 15-16%? Will it not dry down naturally? Seems like lost money paying for propane when the same result will happen naturally.
Thanks in advance for the education!
If they got 280 bushel off sand, they either had rain or they are irrigated. I've heard of sub 20 bushel an acre in my area.I talked with a neighbor today that sells seed and he had a customer pulling 280 bushel an acre corn off a sand river bottom farm. There is a lot of crop to haul out of the field for as dry as it was this year.
