Dry Fall Creates Concern for Spring
Wed, 29 Oct 2014
Dry conditions this fall have been good for getting crops harvested, but South Dakota State University Extension Climate Field Specialist Laura Edwards says it also makes her concerned about the spring. “The dry conditions this fall mean we’re a little bit dry going into spring, assuming we get near average precipitation. We will rely a little more heavily on the spring moisture, at least to get started planting next year.”
ND Corn Harvest Making Steady Progress
Fri, 31 Oct 2014
Mycogen agronomist Bruce Due says the corn harvest is making steady progress in North Dakota. “I would say the eastern half is 30 percent done and not quite as much to the west. The moisture has really come down nicely. I’m getting reports of 16 to 21 percent. Yields are all over the place. Depending on how early it froze. There are some areas that have low test weights, but, at least it’s coming out of the field without having to put a lot of expense to it with the dryer.”

Thunder Seed District Sales Manager Eric Grafstrom is harvesting corn north of Grand Forks. “It’s 150 bushel corn and around 19 moisture so it’s pretty good; amazing, actually. Test weight is 52, somewhere in there.” Grafstrom says the soybeans yields in his area were variable. “I heard some 50 in areas and down to the mid-30s.”
Get After It
Mon, 27 Oct 2014
Farmers made good progress harvesting corn last week, according to Peterson Farms Seed agronomist Adam Spelhaug. “I’d say we’re at least 20 percent or more (harvested) in the southeast corner. As you go north it’s a little bit wetter, so they’re a touch behind getting started.” Spelhaug says most growers are getting average, or slightly above average corn yields. Spelhaug has some suggestions on when to combine your corn. “If it’s 17 to 23 percent, let’s get after it.” Spelhaug says corn that is too dry at harvest is at the greatest risk for yield loss.
