Harvest season is winding down quickly as we have enjoyed dry conditions allowing for timely gathering. Yields are not great, but certainly better than what we were anticipating in late July and early August. Market conditions are not nearly as favorable as in the past few years as well. The drag on our income should encourage everyone to analyze their operational characteristics and plan accordingly for next year. The potential lack of Federal support will require even greater attention to your enterprise decisions.
The excessive precipitation that we have sustained may create leached areas in your fields. It would be advisable to note those weaker areas as you harvest and soil sample those zones separately. We have pulled some samples recently that do not indicate major reductions in nutrients, but the possibilities are strong that we have sustained losses. Please call us if you have questions or concerns.As always, we stand ready to assist in your decision making and any diagnosis that you may need.
