Rainy weather this week has slowed field operations.
Good luck to the St. Louis Cardinals as they go for their 12th championship in 2012!
Here’s what’s going on at Gingerich Farms…
Yesterday thunderstorms brought another .8″ of rain to the Lovington & Arthur area.
Three fields of corn remain to be picked when the moisture is dry enough.
Soybean harvest is 25% completed.
The tillage crew is chugging along, the soil is working beautifully!
The corn harvesting is @90% completed. The moisture on the remaining corn is still higher then we prefer so we are waiting till later this week or next to finish corn harvest.
The combines started on soybeans late last week and will have several days of cutting this week. The soybean yields on the early maturity soybeans are off 40% of normal yields.
The tillage crew had a good week chiseling cornstalks. Progress has been slow because we are still waiting on some of our new tillage equipment to arrive from the manufacturer.
Hope to receive some of the rain forecast for this week!
