Yield Reports So Far Early October
Talked to a friend near Galesburg, IL who says his beans are doing from average to quite well. A friend in eastern Iowa said his were in the high 50's and thought that was better than average. Another friend in EC IA had 70's. I had one field that did well into the 60's.
I'm not hearing much on corn yields yet.
Re: Yield Reports So Far Early October
Cut a field of beans today that went 63bu. A cover crop of rye was terminated before planting in May.
I would say a little above average. That 30' head sure is nice. Years ago we started with a 16' then later had a 20'. I will store these beans a long time. Not much corn done around here even though it is drying fast. Everyone focused on beans.
