An eastern Iowa grower says he has harvested only about 15 percent of his corn but yields are looking very good in some places, ”Yields, low end, about 155 and top end, about 180,” he says. “We must of got a rain shower or two that we didn’t count on.”
Bill Haerther farms 11-acres near Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His soybean yields are lower than in 2012, ”Yieldwise, they were down quite a ways from last year,” Haerther says. “Low ends, probably 35 (bushels per acre), top end, we’ve combined very few beans that have broke 50, very few.”
Haerther’s place got very little rain between the end of July and the end of September.
