Harvest complete! … well almost

by donna.geswein@gmail.com on November 4, 2016

We finished our corn harvest on November 2nd right before the rain! We do have a couple fields of double crop soybeans to go back and get but should have no problem getting that done in the next few days. It’s always such a relief to get the last of the crop out. It’s a very long, tiring stretch of working 14-16 hours a day for our crew. Overall, we are pleased with our yield results. They weren’t as good as the last couple but still good. The beans were the bright spot as yields were very good.

No rest for the weary though … now we start planning for 2017. Soil samples have been taken so we can make fertility plans for next year. We’ll start analyzing what worked and what didn’t so we can purchase inputs for 2017. Also, the guys will be working on equipment maintenance and cleanup before putting away equipment for the winter.

Happy November!
