Central Region Harvest Update

Harvest is underway in the Central Region and varies greatly from north to south and east to west. Most silage is complete and producers have moved to high moisture corn and earlage in the northern parts of the region. Corn grain harvest has been going for at least a week in the central and southern reaches.
I’ve seen and heard of some higher than normal ear rots and molds, so please keep this in mind when making harvest schedules, as well as shipping and storage plans.
Soybean harvest activity is also highly variable. A lot of combines are rolling in most parts of the region. east-central Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois are about 7-to-10 days behind because of planting delays and frequent rains. Some fields in southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa, northern Illinois and western Wisconsin have white mold. In these area, conditions were ideal in early summer for white mold. Make notes on affected fields and varieties so we can better manage white mold next year and beyond.
