Kansas farmer credits dry September for quick harvest
A Northeast Kansas farmer says he’s had ideal weather to wrap up harvest.
“It was kind of a whirlwind harvest. It went fast.”
Lance Rezac of Onega tells Brownfield his last measurable rain was September 1, which meant corn dried down quickly. “By the time we got done, corn was down around 13. It was good corn, it was good corn, it was better than average a little bit.”
He says he finished soybeans earlier this week. “They’re better than average this year. They’re better than average. They’re good quality, they’re good looking beans, they look nice and we’re starting on double crop beans now and they’re a little disappointing.”
Rezac says he’s not surprised by his double crop soybeans because of the lack of moisture in September.
