There's been a lot of talk lately about all these potential harvest issues this fall. I was out in the field last week in a corn field where the ears were as soft and flexible as I've ever seen. Sounds like there could be a lot of cobs breaking up and getting in the grain tank this fall.
So, I thought I'd throw together a few ideas on ways to avoid problems like this running the combine this fall. Here it is: 10 tips for a smoother harvest.
So, what are some of the things you expect to be doing ahead of running the combine here in a few weeks? Anything different than normal?
Another thing that could be a big deal this year is fire. Here are a few ways you can prevent fires in your fields this fall.
I'm thinking of heading out with a rural fire department here sometime in the next couple of weeks to find out a little more on this topic. Any questions I can relay to them?
