Harvest is about a week away for north central Ohio farmer
North Central Ohio Farmer Loren Hulit says his crops are looking good despite a later start to the planting season.
“Our corn is looking decent; we’ll see how it finishes out. Soybeans went in a little late but the warm weather we’ve had here in September and timely rains in August have really helped fill them out and get them vegetative growth they need to be to be a respectable crop,” he says. “It won’t be a bumper crop, at least on our farm, but it will be worth putting in the bin.”
He says harvest is week or so away.
“Probably around the first of October and that would be on soybeans. We might have some corn that will come off a little wet,” he says. “So, we’ll get in the field when we can and hope it’s dry through October and November.”
Hulit and his dad raise corn, soybeans, wheat, hay, and beef cattle northeast of Mansfield.
Brownfield interviewed Hulit, who is the president of Richland County Farm Bureau, during the Ohio Farm Bureau Washington D.C. Leadership Experience.
