MO farmer harvesting around rains

A Western Cornbelt grower has been harvesting around rain delays this fall. Brownfield’s Will Robinson has more.

East-central Missouri farmer Neil Davis tells Brownfield it’s been an unusually warm and wet harvest so far.

“Last week was idle for the whole week, [you] couldn’t do anything because of the rain,” he said. “And if we can miss the rain today, we’ve got a pretty good forecast.”

But Davis said yields haven’t seemed to take a hit from the harvest delays

“[In the] mid to upper 50s,” he said. “Bean yields have been really good this year so far.”

Davis said he’s only about a quarter through harvest so far and is focused on getting his beans out between rains.

“We will cut soybeans until we get rained out,” he said.
