Matt Case Jr. - Hinckley, Illinois
Rainfall:Over this past weekend and into the week we have received no rainfall. Wednesday, (today) rain began to drop at 3:30p.m, in Hinckley, Illinois. Rain and thunderstorms should continue early into Thursday morning.
Corn: ProHarvest Corn is looking outstanding, the ears are huge and are continuing to fill out nicely! ProHarvest 107 Day SmartStax Hybrid (6705), not only looks attractive in the field, but packs a punch when it comes to big yields. Many farmers disassociate early maturities with big yields, but not in this case, 6705 has great dry down, easily adapts over different soil types, and delivers big yields at harvest. Enjoy your Wednesday drink- crops, I'm looking forward to seeing you all at the finish line
Soybeans:ProHarvest Soybeans are putting pods on like crazy and look very healthy -So much vigor these soybeans have! There are many different varieties of soybeans out there that look great, but a couple that caught my eye were ProHarvests 2.4rm Xtend soybean (2427 X) and ProHarvests 2.8rm RR2Y soybean (2871RR2Y) - 2871 is a proven winner year after year delivering consistent yields across Northern Illinois.
Northern Illinois Corn and Soybean fields are looking healthy. I began the week scouting fields, doing stand counts, and estimating potential yields for the upcoming harvest.
I hope you enjoyed my weekly crop update, I had fun writing it!
See you In The Field.
