Buffalo, North Dakota farmer Randy Melvin is harvesting corn. Crop moisture ranges from 13.5 to 15 percent. “I’m hoping it’s not my worst field, but we have a few fields coming up that may have had too much moisture. It may be a variable crop, but it’s starting off on the right foot.” Melvin says it’s nice to get corn harvested in October. Last fall’s corn was harvested in early 2020. “I’m hoping we can be done in about one week. As long as the weather holds, I think the 2020 corn harvest will be ok.”
