2018 Between the Rows



Glenn Harsh, Oct. 5

The rain slowed us up a little bit but we had projects to catch up on anyway so it has been a little bit of a relief. We are coming along with beans and they are running through nicely after the problems we saw with the insect damage in that …

We’ve missed most of the rains here the last couple of days. It is not bean running weather but the weather is cooperating for corn and we are supposed to get temperatures in the mid-80s in the next week. Corn has been down around 17% moisture or so. When we …

I’d say the majority of guys in Van Wert are close to half done with soybeans and maybe 5% to 10% of their corn harvested. So far for our corn there have been no quality issues. The test weight has been 58 to 61 pounds and moisture was about 20.5% …

We haven’t started yet. A lot of guys haven’t started harvest yet up here. I heard some have started corn before beans. We haven’t really had any good drying days to run beans so far. It got close to the 80s a couple of days but it has been cloudy …

It is just starting to drizzle here right now. It looks like we’ll be stopped with harvest for a few days. We started on soybeans on Friday, we got a little rain Friday night and we got some more done yesterday. We got a good start on it. A lot …

We haven’t done any harvesting yet. We have some beans that are getting close. Guys are slowly starting to harvest. It sounds like the crops are doing pretty decent. I looked at a corn test plot yesterday to the south of us. They had anything from 220 to 280 in …

Zach Profit, Sept. 24

We are pretty happy. We are 10% done with corn and 15% done with soybeans. We got started last Monday Sept. 17 in some corn. The moisture starting off was 21% to 23%. We had a small patch that was an earlier hybrid that came in at 18.5%. We haven’t …

We got spared. We got about an inch and a half, so it was not bad. It looks like there are quite a few more hurricanes off of the East Coast that might swing up this way. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. I feel like we …

We fared pretty well. We got a little over 2 inches. A lot of the Cincinnati area and north and south of us had 3 to 5 inches. We didn’t flood. It rained over two-and-a-half days and we fared better than most. South of us is pretty flat and they …
