Harvest Updates from Iowa Corn Leaders – Thursday, November 03, 2011
Roscoe Eggers of State Center will be done with corn harvest in the next 48 hours. He estimates harvest will be done in Marshall County by next week. Many farmers are working on tillage and applying fertilizer. Farmers have been concerned about whether it is too dry for the anhydrous to seal properly. They received a half-inch of rain on Wednesday which will help.
Deb Keller of Clarion says corn harvest is complete in her area. Many farmers are getting tillage done. She estimates about half the tillage work is done in her area. Some rain on Wednesday has stopped field work today but she expects it to start again soon.
Mark Recker of Arlington says corn harvest is nearing completion. There is some corn still standing in fields but it will be harvested soon. Farmers are moving into fall tillage and trying to put on fertilizer. He received about a half-inch of rain on Wednesday.
