Harvest progress continues in our area, with a lot of beans cut last week prior to 2.5 inches of rain over the weekend. Corn progress is slow as moisture loss is at a standstill. Stalks are beginning to fall apart, with tops down and few leaves remaining. Reports of corn and beans along with double-crop soybeans and milo all suggest respectable yields. With temperatures falling during harvest, field work will be put on hold until spring along with residue breakdown. There are a few rigs out applying fall chemicals. Soil sampling crews are busy trying to capture cores.
