A five-week stretch of hot, dry weather took the top of the crop at Red Lake Falls, Minnesota. “Some of the earlier maturity soybeans might not see their full potential because they missed out on some of those rains,” said Luke Forness, Pioneer sales rep. With recent rains, there may be better results for late-season beans. “It looks like they may fill out with a few more pods.” The harvest will begin very soon. In many cases, corn will be ready at the same time as soybeans.
