According to Eric Sperber from Cornerstone Ag, the 2012 Fall Harvest is moving along relatively slow and strung out. Many of the area elevators started receiving their first loads at the end of August.
“As crazy as it sounds, with as dry as it’s been there is not a lot of dry corn” says Sperber. “There is still a lot of uncertainty as to what will get harvested and what won’t.”
Overall quality of the irrigated grain that has been delivered has been decent, but to no one’s surprise the dryland crops have been poor.
