Soybeans are reaching maturity and dropping leaves, but that may not mean harvest will come anytime soon. Low areas of the field and area with heavier soil types have held more moisture, so the soybeans are still very green and healthy. It will take longer for these soybeans to reach maturity. The difference in maturities within the same field will delay harvest and increase the need to watch combine settings to maximize grain quality.
Some hand-shelled samples of corn has moisture in the upper 30s, so it’t won’t be long before it’s dry enough to combine. With daytime high temperatures in the 90s, dry down will be quick. It won’t surprise me if corn harvest is finished this year before soybeans.
