Rain moved through the region over the weekend, providing crops with some temporary relief from the drought. Producers are finishing up this year’s crop activities and are waiting for harvest to begin. Stalk quality issues need to be watched weekly and may force combines to start rolling in fields earlier than we would like. I encourage everyone to get the combines ready; make sure everything is calibrated and the mapping program is working. A notebook and good yield maps are going to be great tools to make decisions and crop plan for 2013.
