Soybean Yields Good, But Not Great
Tue, 21 Oct 2014
Envision Co-op agronomy manager Carter Medalen says soybean yields have been good, but not great in the Rugby, North Dakota area. “Our best yields look like they were at the front side of the planting season. I know we went through a dry stretch and I think that stole a little bit of that later crop’s thunder. Tthey were also a little behind when we got our frost so I think they didn’t finish off the pods at the top.” Medalen thinks most farmers will wait to harvest corn until it dries down some more.

Best Soybeans in Several Years
Fri, 24 Oct 2014
Valley City, North Dakota farmer Darin Anderson finished his soybeans and started his corn on Thursday. “It’s probably our second best crop of soybeans we’ve had in six or seven years. We’re going to be well above 40 (bushels per acre), so we’re really happy. Corn, I’m cautiously optimistic. Talking to guys, it’s been drier than they thought it would be and the yield’s been better than they thought. I’m hoping that corresponds to our corn as well.”
A Harvest Recap From Emerado
Wed, 22 Oct 2014
Emerado, North Dakota farmer Shane Sand says their dry bean, soybean, wheat and sugarbeet harvests are all finished and yields varied. “The wheat crop was pretty good considering how terrible it looked early on. If you were on the right ground, the dry bean crop was pretty good. If you were on the wrong ground, it wasn’t so good. Soybean yields, I thought they would‘ve been better, but they were alright. The sugarbeet field was about what we figured going into it. You had your good field and you had your bad fields so in the end, you got an average.” Sand started harvesting corn last Tuesday and says moisture varied from 20 to 23.

Wyndmere, North Dakota farmer Carson Klosterman has wrapped up his sugarbeet and soybean harvests and is working on his corn. He’s been pleased with his yields. “Soybeans had big yields. Sugarbeets, I would think our area was awful good compared to the factory average. Corn has been all over the board depending on location. Overall for the 2014 crop, I think if we get it in the bin, everybody should be happy.”
