Golden Harvest Sales Representative Brian Langeland says wet weather is slowing harvest progress in south central Minnesota. “Farmers started taking some soybeans off and then, when it got tough cutting the beans, they went to corn. It’s been a really challenging year with all of the rain.” In spite of the tough growing season, Langeland says yield reports are respectable. “There’s anywhere from 50 to 70 on soybeans in most areas of southern Minnesota. The corn is probably not going to see a banner year, but most of our corn is going to be in that 180 to 220 bushels/acre range.”
