OMAHA (DTN) -- Wet weather stalled harvest in many areas of the country this past week, with many of the major Corn Belt states having four or fewer days suitable for field work.
"We started combining beans on Tuesday, Oct. 8, and put in over 90 hours until we got rained out Monday, Oct. 14, about 2 p.m.," said Karen Johnson, a farmer near Avoca, Iowa. "We got an inch by the next morning. Even beans with quite green stems were dry in the pods (10% to 12% mostly)."
She said yields are averaging 45 to 50 bushels per acre.
