So far today (Oct. 21) we only have had a light shower here. We definitely do not need any rain. I am about 30% through beans. Decent yields, but tough to get beans much below 14% so far. I have one more field that will go when we dry up again, but then the last half of the beans are still not fit. They need a week to 10 days. I looked at June-planted corn Saturday and hand sampled 103-day and it was 23% and 110-day was 31%. I’ll bet I am listening to Christmas music in the combine this year.
