2018 Harvest Gets Hot

The harvest officially got started here at JAMF on Friday.  The early 109 day corn we planted had dried down to under 20% moisture.  Yields are near our 5 year average, as expected, to slightly above.  The later corn that we got into yesterday was already under 20% as well.  This dry heat that’s been forecast for the next several days should get the corn dried down at record pace.  We hope to have soybeans that will be ready by the end of the week.  There are over 800 acres of 3.4 maturity beans that will be ready first. The first couple days have gone by smoothly and the weather is in our favor.  We hope to continue on this pace and to have a safe, successful harvest!
