Here is the link to the 2020 crop reporting. Looks like things are ahead of last year. Kind of fun to look week to week! https://www.nass.usda.gov/Statistic...lications/Crop_Progress_&_Condition/index.php
Can’t tell you the percentage but there were many fields of corn that stood all winter and got shelled in March and April this past year. Should have been great for the birds in the area. Don’t expect we will see any of that this year. In talking to a farmer yesterday out there corn was already running at 16% moisture which is very close to what you would put it in the bin at for long term storage.Thanks for including the link Goldenboy ... I mentioned to my wife that I get excited for the update each Monday... she told me that I am crazy. I replied “thank you!”
Last year we were out in December and there was some major snow drifting. Many fields were not harvested due to the water And I would assume with the drifting that many had a hard time getting to fields once the water was frozen. Were the farmers ever able to harvest the crops during Winter or did the fields remain until they were plowed and replanted? What type of a financial hit did farmers take last year and do most if not all have insurance for years like we saw in 2019?
