From the Field Crop Report 10/3/2018

NORTHWEST IOWA

Darin Chapman 

A lot of farmers in Northwest Iowa are trying to start soybean harvest in between the rains. One upside to the rain is the cereal rye cover crop is getting establiahed really well! Farmers are really enjoying using Climate FieldView in their combines this harvest. The variety tracking and split-view mapping capabilities are a huge advantage. Yield results are starting to come in, and LH 5245 VT2 PRO RIB continues to out-perform the competition!

Stalk quality is deteriorating, so harvest as soon as the ground is fit. Waiting for corn to dry down or until your done combining soybeans is not recommended. 

There is a great crop out there!

As the sun goes down, this Latham® customer by Havelock, Iowa, calibrates his yield monitor.

The first Latham® SuperStip corn plot harvested in my territory was combined on Oct. 2 near Burt in Northwest Iowa.  The overall plot average was 240 bushels per acre, which is very good considering the excess rainfall received this year.

In a year where diseases and stalk strength are a huge concern, LH 5095 VT2 PRO RIB and LH 5099 SS RIB continue to show their strengths. Standability and late-season intactness on these two are like no other product in the lineup from 95 to 101 days. For a winning combination in southern and Central Wisconsin, package these hybrids with LH 4795 VT2 PRO RIB, LH 5245 VT2 PRO RIB, or LH 5249 SS RIB.

Cold temperatures and rain are affecting harvest speed. We went from getting hundreds of acres done daily to getting a total of 100 acres harvested during the past 10 days. Soybean harvest is approximately 40% done. Yields range from 15 to 70 bushels per acre. Drought took more off the soybean crop than any other crop planted in North Dakota. Corn harvest is just getting started, but early yield reports are favorable with a very good crop in South Central and Eastern North Dakota.

Harvest is well underway in Southeastern South Dakota. Corn and soybeans are coming out, and we’re hearing yield reports about bumper crops. Now we just need some warmer weather to dry out the soybeans but the ground.
