This weekend’s winter storm meant many things for farmers still trying to harvest corn. For Buffalo, North Dakota farmer Randy Melvin, the snow and cold signaled the end of harvest until 2020. Moisture is in the 20s, with test weights ranging from 46 to 51 pounds. The corn may increase in test weight over winter. “We’re waiting for a February or March start,” says Melvin. For others, like Coleharbor, North Dakota farmer Paul Anderson, the storm brought a much-needed break. Farmers are putting in long hours to finish harvest. “Our test weights are in the low 50s. That’s not too bad to work around.” Andover, South Dakota farmer John Horter was half done with corn harvest before the storm, slowly making harvest progress despite propane shortages. “When we first started, we were in that 24 to 26 percent moisture range,” said Horter. “Test weights have been all over the board from 50 to 55 pounds.” Near, Redfield, South Dakota, corn harvest is wrapping up. The winter conditions are delaying corn drying for Jim Klebsch. “I guess there will be a better day to dry and maybe propane will be more available. In the bin is better in the field.” Listen to the story.
