Missouri farmer has little to harvest

A central Missouri farmer says he’ll wrap up harvest this week, “Harvest has went pretty fast for us where we farm, quite a bit on the Missouri River and some local creek bottoms where there’s virtually nothing there to harvest,” because of flooding.

Andy Clay claimed almost 18-hundred prevent plant acres.

He’s finishing up his several hundred acres of corn and soybeans this week that he was able to plant, “Beans is actually pretty depressing for us. Unfortunately, we had to take a lot of low germ beans. And in between that and having a little too much wet feet and a little bit of disease coming in late that we weren’t really expecting being so late in the year, it’s really showing up for us.”

Clay says they’re trying to let their corn dry down more before taking it out.

Clay farms in Moniteau and Cooper Counties in central Missouri.
