Soybeans looking better than corn in parts of MO

The Vice-President of Agri-Services at MFA Incorporated, a farm cooperative based in Missouri, says fall harvest results are variable across Missouri.

Jason Weirich tells Brownfield corn yields vary from 5 to 300 bushels an acre.

“Depending on where you are, harvest has been very successful. Many farmers are satisfied with 100 to 120 bushel corn with the drought we’ve had and in really bad drought areas, it’s tough.”

Weirich says the soybeans are doing much better than corn.

“There’s 50 to 80 bushel soybeans as things begin, better than anticipated. It seems like any crops along the I-70 corridor going east past Columbia and down by Jefferson City haven’t done well.”

He says the crops along the west I-70 corridor aren’t normal or record, but better than expected.
