Harvest Wraps Up as October Closes

combine 1With cooperative during the last week, farmers across Latham Country made tracks and covered lots of ground. Soybean harvest is nearly 100% complete in all of our territories, with many expecting to have the majority of corn out by Sunday night.

A recent AgWeb article verifies what we’ve been hearing from our seed dealers and customers: yields have been “inconsistent” thus far. “Higher precipitation levels experienced this spring and summer has led to lighter soils, which are more apt to draining, yielding above average. Conversely, heavier soils, that are less apt to draining, have been reporting average to below average yields in those areas that experienced above average rainfall.”
