Beans still to be harvested

My brother was in Memphis last week and notice a lot of beans being harvested. Would that be all double crop this late.

Re: Beans still to be harvested

Memphis seems pretty far south for beans to be still standing. Was it river bottom ground there next to the Miss? Maybe they couldn't get the combine over the field till now...

He said near the airport. I don't think that is bottom ground. Said he saw cotton being harvested too. He was surprised at all the older machinery they were were using also.

Re: Beans still to be harvested

I've cut beans in a couple inch deep snow. It worked pretty well. There wasn't any snow sticking to the fodder. I wouldn't try to cut if the snow was deeper than the cutter bar. At a couple inches I still got some snow through the machine. Seems like I turned the fan up to try to blow it out the back before it could melt. Do you have a rotary or cylinder type combine.
