Chopping Now, Harvesting in 2 Weeks?

[ Edited ]

Is it generally the case that harvest starts two weeks after corn silage is cut? If so, this farmer just south of Des Moines, Iowa, cutting for silage, Sunday, may be making area farmers nervous. I took this shot just north of Milo, Iowa. Oh, and, a number of soybean fields are turning, seen both yellowing and browning. Hmmm?

And this is not the only chopping that I saw, in this area, yesterday (Sept. 4). Is this early?
