Harvest has started in Illinois! Farmers in southern Illinois have been going for a while, with central Illinois farmers starting in earnest this week and northern Illinois probably starting next week.
Grant Noland in Macon County reports that his yields are variable, but 175-210 bpa at 22-30% moisture would catch most of what he’s seeing. Yields in southern Macon/N Christian Co reported thus far have been big. Not hearing anything under 200 bpa. We do believe our home area is better due to additional rainfall.
Interested in more harvest updates? We’ll have many more next week!
