Harvest continues Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Jevon Rockwell, Erie CountyWe’ve been really moving along now. We have 800 acres of beans off. The first beans we cut were in the mid-40 range and those were our worst. Since then we have been in the mid-60 range and we did have a 45-acre field average 84 bushels and those were weighed across the scale.In some places on the lighter ground or gravel ridges it seems like the beans died off and then started re-growing. The beans themselves are dry but some of the stems are green. I think those beans got too dry and stalled out for a while then started re-growing. These late rains and nice weather we have had, though, helped them even out and they are easy harvesting now.Either today or tomorrow we are going to get wheat planted. Sitting in line at the elevator has been eating up my schedule as far as getting wheat planted. Probably tomorrow I’ll get it planted.We have not touched any corn yet. We have been cutting about 200 acres of beans a day so in about three days we’ll be done with beans. We’ll go right into corn. A lot of it is starting to break over. I was next to a corn field yesterday cutting beans and you could see corn down pretty bad. It is time to get going with the corn.We have been moving right along. It is good to have nice weather.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more
