Texas corn harvest is set to start. Here are the corn photos from Williamson County, Texas. This corn is located a mile from the grainery, it was one of the more earlier planted fields in the area. It is located in the middle of the county about 45 miles northeast of Austin, Texas. If you remember, we posted photos of this corn when it was planted in Mid-March. It's ready to go. The local elevator tells me that it will receive its first load of corn this week. Here are the photos, folks:

SouthWestOhio,

 

The elevator manager told me that he has already tested some local corn. He thinks it's just a bit on the high side, regarding the moisture levels. But, he's prepared to take in his first load this week.

I don't know much about corn production, but I would imagine they had more GDU's.

They like to harvest quickly so the Johson grass doesn't get them in trouble ---

Re: Floor Talk July 3

Interesting that there are some blank stalks there too. And planted at 20-22k? What's the expected yield on this, 100 bu or so?

Longcreekfarms,

 

Good questions. I'm trying to find out more information on this corn. Also, hope to have a few more photos from different locations, later.

Re: Floor Talk July 3

100 bushels per acre?     That's gonna take USDA's national yield down a bit...............:smileywink:
