We keep hearing about this "southern corn production". In 2012 arkasas' total corn production (according to NASS) was 102 million bu. Kossuth co. (iowa) anuual production was almost 53 million bushels. that was one county. Next we will be hearing about mississippi and maryland. geesh! These guys are gonna cover us up in corn. Right? It'sno wonder basis has collapsed. I'll go out on a limb here and say that no significant amounts of corn will be harvested in north iowa before oct. 10th. They'd better get started haulin 'cause the pigs and chickens gotta eat, here.

DId you get much rain last night? I got 3 tenths. sure made me feel better and things look better this AM. I agree on the late harvest date. Lots of beans will need a killing frost before they can be harvested. and it will be slow going this year. Hope folks can remeber how to use the driers this fall.
