Harvest has arrived and is on hold already. We finished our first corn field (80a). It tested 21% and avg 194 bu/a. That’s pretty good considering this field avg 20 bu/a last year. If we would have had rain these last two months, this field would have made over 200.

A seed dealer showed up just as I was opening the field up. He rode along and watched as I  took out the end rows. Lucky me.

The weather was beautiful. After we finished here we opened up another field. It tested 26%. So we decided to wait on it.

William disked the stalks before we got .5″ rain.
