Farmers on cusp of harvest in west central Iowa

Farmers in west central Iowa are on the cusp of harvest.

In fact, Calhoun County corn and soybean grower Brent Johnson says silage chopping is winding down.

“We don’t have a lot of that in the area, but the guys who do that are finished. There’s been a couple guys that have started with some high moisture (corn because) they’ve needed some feed, but otherwise we’re probably about two weeks out I suppose.”

The Iowa Farm Bureau president tells Brownfield crops are rapidly maturing.

“Beans are turning pretty hard (and) there will be some combines rolling in corn before beans I would imagine around here.”

Johnson anticipates trendline yields.
