Early October brought eight to ten inches of snow to the Mayville, North Dakota area. With the change in weather, Brent Kohls is now able to get back into certain fields. “The soybean moisture levels have come down to that 12 (percent) mark.” Early yields are described as above average. Corn moisture levels are ranging from 20 to 27 percent, higher than Kohls would like to see. “From where we were in September, I thought the corn would really dry down; the ears in some of these fields are mature, but they haven’t tipped down yet. That’s impacted the moisture on some of the corn. Those upright ears took on the rain and snow.”
