In this week’s edition of Boots In The Field Report, Ken Ferrie provides an overview of how harvest is going across Illinois, Iowa and Ohio.

One thing he emphasizes is to make sure you have a plan in place regarding the order of the fields you harvest.

“If we’ve got fields that are almost in trouble, we’ve got to go get into those fields that are still standing first,” says Ferrie, Farm Journal Field Agronomist and owner of Crop-Tech Inc. “At this point, don’t be so preoccupied with corn that’s down that you miss the opportunity to stop some of that yield loss in fields where it’s not down yet.”

  Drought stricken corn leaving under developed stalks with late season rains seem to be taking its toll on standability. Early harvest seems to be best option

  Having some standability issues mainly where the water left the field. I think most of the trouble came from water going over the tassel 3 times in 3 weeks
