Fall Harvest for 2014

I have finished harvesting both our corn and soybeans at the Agronology 10 Research Center on September 30, 2014. 

Harvesting surprises

One of the biggest fall harvesting surprises occurred on Tuesday, September 30, 2014. On Tuesday evening, we began harvesting our maturity group 2.9 soybeans with temperatures in the middle 80’s. Wednesday morning it was cold (55°), overcast, with no dew, and the wind was blowing. When we finished harvesting on Tuesday evening, our harvest moistures for 2.9 maturity group soybeans were from 9.9 to 11.2%. But on Wednesday morning, our harvest moistures began at 14.5% and finished at mid- afternoon with harvest moistures still at 13.5%.
