Pioneer Harvest Update 10/6/14

 

For almost 14 straight days, the weather was ideal for harvest in the western part of the state. Then, this past weekend, 2 and 3 inch rains brought things to a halt. Fieldwork may resume this weekend. Eric Halter with DuPont Pioneer says the soybean harvest is headed toward the home stretch, “We have about 70% of the soybeans harvested and about 25% of the corn.” As for yields, he said the soybean numbers have been outstanding, “We have seen a lot of fields with 55 bpa to 70 bpa averages, and some even higher.” Overall, he added, the Pioneer P series soybeans have really excelled, “In the Crawfordsville area, our mid 2’s have performed far beyond my expectations and the mid 3’s have done very well; 34T07 has really been excelling across the area.”
