23 Sep Janel: Here we go again
South Central Nebraska—Another fall harvest has arrived and here we go again. We just traveled back to Nebraska two days ago and are already in the field cutting soybeans. It’s Sept. 18 and the weather is hot, dry and breezy. That ripens soybeans quicker.
The irrigated soybeans typically yield in the 70s and 80s. So far the dryland has been light due to the summer heat and drought. The irrigated is showing around 80 bushels per acre.
It feels good to be back in Nebraska. I’m ready to get fall harvest moving along. I’ll cut soybeans first then pick corn. We have six combines here cutting soybeans and three in Kansas picking wet corn.
Our forecast is hot and dry but we have chances of rain next weekend. I’m looking forward to getting the soybeans cut. Best of luck everyone with fall harvest 2023.
