“Our corn crop is good this year. Yields so far are above to well above average.


This morning, we got enough snow to cover the deck. The higher moisture contents due to this could keep them out of the field for a bit. Otherwise, conditions have been good.


“We already finished harvesting soybeans and switched back to corn end of last week. In all, we have about seven to ten days of harvest left.”


– Addie Yoder, Missouri farmer



“As of last week, we were about 35 percent finished with corn harvest and 80 percent done with soy. Our corn yields are good, and I am surprised by how well the soybeans did considering how wet August and September were. Hopefully, we can wrap up by Halloween or early the week after that.”


– Lowell Neitzel,  Kansas farmer
