Yesterday afternoons harvest progress was released by the USDA and numbers were below expectations as a result last week’s wet weather and grains that are not drying down as fast as producers would like. US corn harvest was reported at 31% complete compared to 53% for the 5 year average. Wisconsin corn harvest was reported at 11% complete compared to a 35% average. US soybeans were reported at 53% complete compared to 66% on average. Forecasts for warmer and drier weather across the Midwest over the next 10-14 days should help increase progress. Producers are facing a tough decision this year with the slow dry down of this year’s crop. Many are hoping that the extended forecasts will help dry the crop in the field and reduce drying costs, but are questioning what we will have for weather in November. Historically trying to harvest corn in November can be very risky as the weather tends to turn colder and wetter very quickly. The decision comes down to: is waiting for the crop to dry down 2-3 points in a week(if we have warm(60+) and moisture free weather), worth the risk of leaving the crop out there and risking weather and field loss later in the year. Producers should also consider how much easier it is drying grain in 50-60 degree weather compared to 30 degree or below weather! This morning corn is up 4 and soybeans are up 10. Producers should take advantage of these rallies and be making sales.
