Lafayette Indiana Field Update for 10-18-2012


Indiana corn yields have suffered with the drought this year and soybean yields are down in many cases, although some Hoosier fields have reported the best yields ever. In Tippecanoe County Levi Huffman’s harvest is complete. Corn and bean yields are down, but so are yields for his specialty crops, tomatoes and jalapeno, sweet cherry and hot cherry peppers. At a whole farm average of 42 Huffman’s beans didn’t measure up to the usual 58 to 60 bushels per acre.
