Irving - Witt
I took a lap around Irving and Witt area today. Corn harvest is almost over. About 10% of beans are harvested. The corn is ahead of IL weather and crop report for our area. The soybeans are about right on target with NASS. Corn harvest is way ahead of the average, but the past two years have pulled the average down a lot. However it is surprising that 57% is ahead of all years back to 2000. Soybeans are about on target. 8% of winter wheat seeded is a bit ahead of average, and it its a bit too early to plant anyway.
