Some combines finally emerged slowly out of storage sheds last week. While harvest progress was extremely limited, at least a few initial crop reports were fairly positive despite extreme crop variability. Massac County farmer Marc Bremer harvested corn four consecutive days last week and was pleasantly surprised with yields slightly above average from a field planted in mid-May. “There’s no guarantees this (early harvested corn) is our best or our worst. Like a lot of people, we’re not going to know exactly what this crop is until it hits the bin,” Bremer said. (FarmWeekNow)
