First Day of Crop Tour - Part 2

Published on: 21:31PM Aug 16, 2010

Just got back from the meeting with the other participants and local growers.  Looks like there were about 200 people or more in attendance.  Our counts versus the other routes for the day seemed very similar.  The one thing that stood out to me was the drilled soybeans in South Dakota had some wildly high pod counts.  If they get enough rain, the yield up there may be another record.  But that is a big if.

We will be headed out at 6:30 in the morning, but our route appears to be much shorter than today.  We probably put on over 350 miles today and tomorrow is closer to 150 miles.

I will report tomorrow evening and let you know how Nebraska turns out.
