Late August 2012 Observations

  1.  Many of our soybean fields received 1.5 to 2.0 inches of rain in early August.  These rains added bushels, therefore I am predicting 5 to 8 bushels more soybean to our yield.  But if the forecasted rains pass us by, our increased soybean yield opportunities could be finished for our 2012 soybean crop.

  2. On 23 August, I am observing that my 2.5 maturity group soybeans are rapidly changing color from green to yellow.

  3. My better looking corn is still looking good; however, my bad looking corn is finished, done for the year.
