West Alton - Shipman

Went to West Alton today.  Very few beans were harvested.  One farmer who had harvested said moisture is 15% with lots of beans still green.  Even the big farmers have not started.  It will be 2 or 3 days yet.  I heard that more was harvested further west. 

Shipman area, just about any field work that can be done in the fall was underway.  Tillage, corn harvest, soybean harvest, fertilizer and lime spreading.  I hope no Anhydrous application.  Soil temperature is 55 degress, but it will go up later this week.   That is why early nitrogen application is not a good idea.
