My corn went 61 bu an acre wet. My average yield on that farm is 112 bu. So far that's my worst corn yield since I started farming a few years back. That is actually the highest dryland yield I have heard of in this area so far. MAYBE some soybeans will get harvested this week. We just can't seem to buy enough sunshine for the beans to dry out.

Getting a good start on beans.(started yeserday afternoon late) The seed dude was here with his weigh buggy this afternoon and we did a yield check just where I was in the field ...nothing
"cherry picked" 60.34 @ 9.4% moisture. Dry land southern Iowa.
Hand shelled some corn in the field right next to these beans (the Plant in the dust field) and came up with 20.4 to 19.6 moisture. Still too wet but getting better.

My corn came at 40 bushel average across all acres. Range was from 13-60. Frist field of beans averaged 20.04 bu/a at 13% with a lot of green stems and pods it was very difficult to get a clean sample with all the green. The dry pods were already popping open in the field so could not wait. Patrick

New corn and soybean crops coming in Thursday, around Minonk, IL are not good.
Corn is averaging 30-60 bushels per acre
Soybean yields are anywhere from the teens to 40 bushel per acre.

Different bean field today. Seed salesman brought out the weigh wagon. One variety 31.2 bu/a the other was 27.8 bu/a. Not a bumper crop but better than 20 from the first field. Patrick

Flood irrigated field: 'average' yield 165 or so, last year was over 180. This year, averaging 135 for the whole field, but with one variety making 100, and the one next to it 180, with small spots in the field I belive are 200+ .
Lots of variability both in soil type, slope, and hybrid variety, with the hybrid choice being probably the biggest factor. We had 4 or 4 days of highs only in the 90s, with a week+ of 100+ weather both before and after. The corn that pollenated during that cool spell, when the daytime highs weren't much over 95, and the nights dropped to 70, did surprisingly well, the corn that pollenated in the heat, not so well, and the one variety I had that pollenated in the 3-4 days it was 110+, windy, and 80+ at night, just about made me sick running the combine through. Fortunately, due to either luck or divine intervention, I didn't plant too much of that. Sad, when irrigated corn, barely yields enough to just pay the irrigation expense, with $7.50 corn.

got a shower this morning, just went out to the bean field I was in last night this is the front of a Chevy Trail Blazer
Same spot in the field June 28th
Was planning to get the seed dude out with his wiegh buggy today but need some Sun first. Probably the best beans I ever raised. Not Pioneer and only RR1's This field is about two miles up river from the other field we checked a few days ago.

Well the sun came out this afternoon and the seed rep was in the area and we did 3 yield cks.
1st one exactly where the Blazer pict was taken was 77.45. Just a little ways away it came in
Clear across the field at the opposite end of the field it came in @ 78.95
