River Valley Extension Agent Todd Whitney reported harvest in Washington County is moving a bit slower due to green stems and a record amount of double crops.
Whitney reported that there has been a minimal amount of Sorghum harvested due to a large amount of green leaves. With the exception of double crop, soybean harvest is approximately 80% complete with the majority of yields in the 40 to 50 bushel per acre range. Whitney said that the corn harvest has been hindered by moisture and heat issues earlier in the year as well as green fields. He estimates the corn harvest to be approximately 50% complete with most yields in the 100 to 120 bushels per acre.
