Corn harvest is 52% complete vs 41% last week and average 75%. Bean harvest is 75% complete vs 62% last week and average 87%.  Corn is especially far behind but not anyway close to being behind like 2009 was.

Winter wheat crop improved 1% to 57% good to excellent vs 51% last year.

From what I can see a lot of soybeans in the last few days/weeks have been harvested wet and now the trick is to dry them or hope to dump then at the elevator and take your lumps

If drying using a drier that means no corn gets dried although a lot are trying to use air to dry beans

All around a tough situation and the market doesn't care what is costs the farmer

It is total production and now SA that counts

I can't believe corn is so far behind

2009 is not a good guide as we all know that was mostly a disaster of 40-40-40

Less or just a tich over 1/2 done in important states with Nov weather and threat of more snow

We have chances of snow, although it won't likely do more thn delay us a day or so

Still Nov is not when you want crop in the field

Folks with 35 % corn have a huge problem

We have our wet bin full to nite, just shut down the combine

I worked the ripper today and I am tired to nite

We still got corn to harvest and with lime spread, now a lot of fall tillage to do

The boys [although one is my grand son] must be feeling the pressure of time constraints, when they ask me to drive a tractor

At least our soil is dry, some have standing water

That water is one big reason the harvest s late and that water won't go away in a day or two in many places

Frozen soil with standing water is still no good.

You have mud under the frozen ice, with down crop stuck in the ice water.

Lot of crop will be harvested next spring which will put pressure on the planting of 2020

And some ask why basis is so strong.
