So far in Michigan, 43 percent of corn has been harvested for grain and 77 percent of soybeans have been harvested, according to the USDA as of Oct. 30.
Tom Manney – Technical Agronomist for Specialty Hybrids – says harvest has been moving along very well as most of Michigan has avoided a lot of big rain outs this fall. He says that has given a lot of farm operations a chance to focus on getting their soybean and corn crops out of the fields.
Manney adds that corn yields so far have been “very solid.”
“Corn yields have been a little bit sporadic, to be honest. There are some areas of the state that caught a little bit less rain than others. But, for the most part, operations are very happy with where their yields are at,” says Manney.
