May 23, 2014                             No. 2014-11 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Bob Scott, and Scott Stiles Crop Progress I think we missed spring.  It feels like we broke out of winter straight into summer anyway.  I blame going from nights in the 40s a week ago to upper 80s and 90s now. In the past week, the […]

September 12, 2013                    No. 2013-25 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Many growers are continuing to make quick work of harvest these days.  The majority of yield numbers coming in are 180+ bu/acre with most numbers in the 200+ range.  Difficult to be unhappy with those kinds of yields.  […]

September 6, 2013                      No. 2013-24 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Seeing trucks stacking up at the mill is an easy giveaway that harvest is picking up steam.  It’s becoming common that I hear people with high test weights (45-47 lbs/bu).  Trucks get heavy really fast with test weights […]
