Wide ranging conditions are resulting in extreme variability as harvest begins in west-central Minnesota.
Jamie Beyer of Wheaton describes the 2023 growing season as widely variable.
“Yields are really running a pretty wide gamut and it all probably has to do with who caught rain and who didn’t catch hail. But in our case on our farm, the crops are running a little better than what we expected.”
As for harvest progress, Beyer says they’re about three percent done.
