If you take a drive around the northern tier of counties, you'll occasionally see bean dust coming from combines in the late-April and early May planted beans. Mid-60s seems to be catching a majority of the yields. Maybe there are one or two fields per township being harvested, with a vast majority of the acres still carrying plenty of yellow and green leaves. I’m just arriving at black layer on my earliest 102-day corn variety. It’s still really early in the harvest, but I’m guessing there's a chance my springtime decision to try a box of 109-day corn may end up making my LP delivery man work overtime five to seven weeks from now. Last year’s early dry down is a distant memory.
