Fall harvest began with corn about a month ago, the drought was extremely hard on the crops this year. We still have some irrigated corn to harvest. At this point, the plan is to harvest most of it and then chop some for silage for the feeder cattle we will have this winter. Grain sorghum (milo) and Soybeans will be harvested in October most likely. Fall harvest is different than the Wheat harvest in the sense that it is spread out longer. Wheat harvest for the most part is done in June or July and for us lasts approximately 10 days. Fall harvest you are dealing with three different crops, so harvest time spans about 3 months, August through October. As always, the weather is a huge factor in when crops are planted and harvested.
Today MV pulled the John Deere drill /air seeder out and began preparing it for wheat sowing! He replaced the seed lock press wheels.
