Corn Harvest Begins

Posted by romeethredge on July 31, 2014

Corn harvest is going strong this week as many growers are in the fields. The moisture is 20 to 24 % so they are having to dry it.  I think it’s a good idea to get it out as quickly as possible for best yield and quality. Also, we had bad southern rust this year so our stalk strength may not be the best. If winds or storms come in we may see more falling than in some years.

Channel 4 came over yesterday to do a story about the corn harvest and here’s a link to their video.
