We had some soybeans that have dried down fast enough to get harvested. Even though they were our latest planted soybean field, they were the first that have been ready. It’s a beautiful 70+ degree day and it still feels a bit like summer.
Since it rained 2-3 inches last weekend, I’m a bit skeptical as to if we should be harvesting right now. The soybeans are dry, but the stems are a bit stiff. The ground is soft and we are making some pretty big tracks, which equates to some major compaction. Yet, when we can harvest, we just have to go for it. Rain in the forecast isn’t near, so it looks like going time. Go!
