We went to Dekalb for the weekend. Saw a good bit of corn in the fields. It looks as if the Crop reorts are correct about harvested amounts.

Snow North of I 80 will hamper harvest. This picture shows corn being used a snowfence.

A few observations.

Tillage without ruts in the field is probably not a good idea. Compaction will outweigh any advantage.

Chiseling rutted areas may be the only way to dry out the ruts.

Soybeans planted in wet holes to fill in look to have been futile this year. Even if you have soybeans, they are probably standing in water.

Today's wind will probably put down all but the strongest stalks. 50 mph winds in December on this unharvested corn is killer.

Not sure if we are done for the year, but it looks like mother nature may have taken care of that.
