Minnesota farmer sees exceptional corn yields despite dry summer

A west-central Minnesota farmer is half done with harvest and says corn yields are exceptional.

Doug Albin tells Brownfield crops performed very well considering the limited amount of rain this summer.

“These new hybrids and the technology is absolutely amazing to be able to produce a crop.”

The Clarkfield area corn and soybean grower farms with his wife and says harvest should be winding down by the end of next week.

“And we can go back to normal hours of work and can actually sit down and have dinner together.”

Once harvest is over, Albin says he’s going to try strip-till and no-till on several farms and has some tiling to do.

Albin chairs the Minnesota Corn Research and Promotion Council and made his comments during an upcoming Minnesota Corn Podcast, a client partnership with Brownfield.
