Soybean harvest is nearing completion near Kennedy, Minnesota. Farmer Rob Rynning has only a couple hundred acres left to run through the combine. Yields are variable due to dry conditions during the growing season. “This area went six weeks with maybe one measurable rain. That really took the top yields off the crop, ” says Rynning. “A few places that caught the rain might be seeing yields in that 40 bushel range, but boy that’s very thin. Otherwise, we’re pretty much looking at upper 20s to mid-30s for most of the soybeans.”
