Michigan row crop harvests underway

Corn and soybean harvests have started in Michigan.

As of last Sunday, the USDA says corn is rated at 56 percent good to excellent with 96 percent in the dough stage, 71 percent dented, and 19 percent mature.  About one percent of corn has been harvested for grain and 37 percent for silage.

Soybeans are 33 percent dropping leaves and one percent harvested with 54 percent of the crop in good to excellent shape.

Dry beans are 80 percent dropping leaves, seven percent harvest, and the crop is rated 26 percent good to excellent.  Sugarbeets are also seven percent harvested and rated 56 percent good to excellent. 

Some apples are maturing faster than expected as rains slowed the pace of harvest.  The cooler weather has been beneficial to vegetable growers as their season wraps up.
