Wabash County

Kevin Raber farms near Browns in Wabash County. He is an original Cropwatcher.

Rain, sleet, snow and extremely cold temperatures from Monday afternoon (Nov. 11) through Thursday slowed harvest last week. I started corn again Thursday. Hopefully, there will be some good weather so I can finish harvest.

Fieldwork was slow last week. Rain events delayed harvest. The ground is soaking it up pretty good. Late-planted crops seem to be taking a long time to dry down. The wheat is off to a good start.

Extreme heat was the topic of the week. I believe we have set new records on back-to-back days. Harvest has been slowly moving forward. There has been some wheat sown.
