This week corn and soybean harvest is off to a strong start. Most operators have started on soybeans and are waiting on corn to dry down a little bit more. Soybean yields in SW Iowa have been between 50-70 bushels per acre depending on planting date and early season wetness issues. Corn yields in SW Iowa have been between 170-240 bushels per acre again depending on planting date and early season wetness issues. The yields so far represent a very small portion of the overall acres in SW Iowa and I expect varying yields as harvest progresses. If good fall weather holds a majority of the corn and soybean acres in the area will be harvested during the month of October.
