American Soy Bean Harvest is Underway

October 2011 is providing perfect drying conditions throughout the upper Midwest. That means record soybean and corn crops are being harvested on schedule with a minimal of storage drying needed, if any.

Travel down most rural gravel roads in 42N country right now and you'll be treated to sights like this. Combine harvesters can also be seen on both gravel and hard surface roads traveling between fields. Be careful driving - farmers are doing their jobs, may be working late hours and are operating large, slow moving equipment. Know that.
