Farmers are harvesting the early soybean fields.
Mark Querna, manager of F.I.R.S.T. trials in Minnesota, said farmers in the New Richland area started soybeans in a small way starting Sept. 21-22.
One of his neighbors started combining soybeans last night, Sept. 27.
"I think farmers for the most part will get started on soybeans today, and through Wednesday," he said via phone. "I talked with one other farmer that is looking at the weekend of Oct. 2-3, but there is rain in the forecast."
Querna thinks soybean harvest across southern Minnesota will hit its stride late this week. Like myself, Querna has yet to hear any soybean yield numbers.
