Badger, Minnesota farmer Shayne Isane has wrapped up his harvest. Early crops, like spring wheat and perennial rye grass, were poor after receiving only 1.5 inches of rain each month throughout the growing season. “As we got into canola, soybeans and corn, it was probably an average crop,” said Isane. “I don’t know where all the yield came from, but somehow those crops dug down and found moisture.” The heat and dryness pushed teh crop ahead of schedule. “Normally, by the time we finish corn we’re pushing into the first week of November so this is earlier and we’re happy with that.”
