Midwest
Cass County, Neb.: Finished harvest on the 19th of November.  Corn this year was just awesome for eastern Nebraska.  Field averages ran from 160 bu/ac to 239 bu/ac with most field averages running right around 200.  Corn averaged right at 200 bu/ac this year compared to 165 bu/ac in 2008.  Only sprayed 160 acres with Headline and it was at least 20 bushel better. Best crop that we have ever had. Beans averaged right at 60 bu/ac this year compared to 42 bu/ac in 2008.  A lot of anhydrous going on right now.  A few guys disking stalks.  Heading to Illinois on the 24th to see if I can help the father in law pick corn.  Sounds like there is a lot to do out there so we will see what we get done.  Everybody have a happy turkey day and good luck with the rest of the harvest if you are still running.

Giles County, Tenn.: Finished harvest Saturday the 28th. Corn just shy of 170 and beans just over 40 (all double crop). Wet, Wet, Wet. No fall sowing to speak of nor tillage. Bins full, lines full, mills full. Best crop and the most challenging in five years. Thankful to have problems.

West
San Luis Obispo, Calif.: The cactus had a good summer. The early rain, the largest October rain in California in 45 years washed the ground-water mineral deposits off the leaves. We've been harvesting since April... we'll be picking still until the first hard frost... usually in Jan.
