Corn harvest is almost wrapped up near Onida, South Dakota. “We started three weeks earlier than usual. The corn harvest started in the third week of September,” said Tim Luken, location manager, Oahe Grain. “Soybean harvest is complete and sorghum harvest is nearing completion. The sunflower harvest has taken a back seat and the area is more than five percent complete.” The corn crop is very good. “Yields on the corn vary from 140 to 170 bushels per acre, unheard of around here. Moisture of the driest corn is at 10.5 percent. The test weight is good and quality is excellent compared to last year.”
