Wheat is in the bin

Wheat harvest has been in full swing here in the eastern cornbelt this week. Yield reports in my area are generally pretty good. My wheat bounced around on the yield monitor from near zero in drown out spots to a high of 113 in better drained areas. My overall average yield was 65 bu. Not bad for a crop that spent last fall and early spring looking like a drowned rat.

Double cropping beans ?

I saw two guys planting beans on Wednesday in NW Ohio. Sure seems plenty late, but I’ll give them an A for effort.

Re: Wheat is in the bin

Roarin, I will not be double cropping beans, it's getting late and between the risk of frost and just not having much free time I've decided to give the land a short fallow. I took some soil tests today and will use the summer to get manure and lime (if needed) spread.
