Wheat Harvest Starts

I saw the first harvested wheat field yesterday and several combines in the field in Fayette County.  Can double crop beans be far behind?  Moisture should be good for germination.  Most wheat growers plant soybeans unless they are tiling or doing conservation work.  Some hog farmers like to spread manure on wheat ground.   Prairie Farmer published comments on double crop soybeans by LG seeds agronomist Crafton.

One friend cut enough yesterday to calibrate and it was 25%. It will be very high yielding wheat. I called Keyne's Milling and they had received one load yesterday at 20% so we are close, too. I imagine it will be Monday if it doesn't rain too much this weekend.
