Ohio farmer sees good yields despite slow dry down
A northwest Ohio farmer says he’s down to his last soybean field to harvest this week.
Jeff Duling tells Brownfield soybean yields have been average.
“It’s in that 65–70-bushel range, very happy,” he shares. “Corn’s wet, I’d say 26 moisture, 27 moisture average maybe more.”
Duling says there hasn’t been a significant rain since February and crops have still been late maturing. He’s questioning how much impact the Canadian wildfires might have had.
“It was very hazy and smoky here for quite some time and I just wonder if that didn’t affect us a little bit,” he says.
The Putnam County grower is expecting corn harvest to be finished by Thanksgiving.
