The field below is south of Nokomis. It is a large field and it was completely harvested. The green corn on the right is not in the same field. I did not see any green in the area harvested. I suspect this field was planted before April 1 and judging from the stalks probably had a decent yield. Nitrates in stalks may prevent dry down, but this field looks like it was fairly dry. Some of this corn may not stand well. I expect to see some more harvested soon because of standibility issues, although most will wait for it to dry down to 20% moisture before getting too serious about harvest.
Like everyone else, I am looking forward to the yield estimates to be released Wednesday. I am pretty sure it will drop some. I also suspect yields estimates will change as corn is harvested. It is really difficult to estimate this year because yields will be a field by field thing. We have 0 to near 200 in our county.
