18 Nov Janel: Sunshine and clear blue skies
Central Nebraska—We are staying busy harvesting corn. We have had several days of sunshine and clear blue skies and finally today we are harvesting dry loads testing under 17%. I was beginning to think the corn wasn’t going to dry down. The irrigated corn is high yielding with test weights of 58 to 62 pounds per bushel.
Our forecast continues to be clear with highs in the 60s. Nice weather makes corn harvest enjoyable. We have three combines here picking corn, one combine east of here picking corn and two combines cutting milo in western Kansas. It’s been a busy fall harvest and I would assume we’ll be finishing up in the next couple of weeks. As always, best of luck to all of you harvesting the grain that feeds the world. Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
