Harvest Latest

Friday, 25 October 2013

As harvest season wraps up in Coles County farmers are reporting some good yields! Area farmer Stan Metzger says this harvest is close to the largest he's ever had on his farm. This week's temperature drop has brought an early frost to Coles County...but Metzger says the frost wasn't harmful...it was HELPFUL...to the corn harvest. He says the frost helped the crops mature faster to allow more corn to be harvested. Metzger says compared to last year...this year's weather conditions have been good for corn and soybeans.
