This photo of a wind-damaged field near Algona, Iowa, serves as a reminder to keep checking corn fields for stalk issues.

Farmers in Northwest Iowa are trying to decide if they should start on corn or soybeans. With the weather conditions we have had this growing season stalk integrity will be tested. Rain continues to fall, and farmers are eager to get in the field. What little that has been harvested is yielding well. Latham L 1858 R2 soybeans whole-field average 78 bushels per acre near Hull, Iowa. We look forward to more reports like these!

Corn in Southern Wisconsin is maturing rapidly. Significant acres of corn were harvested at 19 to 20% moisture before farmers even attempted soybeans. 

We harvested a Latham® Hi-Tech Hybrids SuperStrip Monday in Monroe. The average to above-average yields were expected as has been an extremely challenging growing season.

Combines are ready to roll, but rains have delayed harvest. I checked a field with LH 4454 VT2 PRO RIB, LH 4517 VT2 PRO RIB and LH 4692 RR.  These hybrids are outstanding! Pictured below is 4454, averaging 18 rows and 30 kernels per row. This hybrid will push past 200 bushels per acres.

Many varieties of edible beans are grown in North Dakota. Here’s a field of Navy beans being harvested this week near Emerado, ND. Click here if you’d like to learn more about pinto bean production.

Many soybeans acres have been harvested throughout South Dakota, while some soybeans are still standing in wetter fields and some of the later planted fields. Although they’re still very green, these soybeans have great yield potential!  Harvest is expected to resume in some areas tomorrow after a week of rain. Other parts of the state received six to eight inches of rainfall and need more drying time.

Silage chopping is about done here in North Dakota. Our Latham customers, once again, had fantastic results. Even the areas with intense stress and lack of moisture turned out better than expected. We often talk consistency in our corn stands with the focus on grain production. The same production can be said for silage, as well. The field being chopped here was “consistently” as tall as the cab on the chopper even higher in some spots. This year is shaping up to be another fun one!
