An agronomist with South Dakota State University Extension says he is expecting an early corn harvest starting in a week to 10 days.
Jonathan Kleinjan says the corn is drying down fast and he is expecting a variable crop. Silage chopping has been happening over the last few weeks.
“Yields around here have been ok near Brookings County, but it’s been variable, especially moving south. A friend of mine from northwest Iowa says corn yields have been anywhere from 20 to 170 bushels/acre.”
Kleinjan says wet corn for earlage will be harvested next.
