Soybean Harvest Inspected and Analyzed

The Ag Analyst is has been called in to analyze the soybean harvest.
The Farm Inspector has completed her field inspection. 
The weather is cooperating as much as we can expect for late October. 
 Despite the cool days, sunshine and wind work together to dry out the field by early afternoon. The soybeans go into air bins near safe storage moisture.
The Farm Inspector and the Ag Analyst were in complete agreement that all was well with the harvest. 
Less than a day later, we had a different picture to inspect and analyze.  
Wet snow and temperatures in the thirties had taken over the fields of soybeans. 
 The skies were gray and the soybeans were dripping as the snow melted.
However, there is still sunshine in GriggsDakota.

  2. Lana,
    No, just an added layer of drying needed. Snow has to melt, which has happened, followed by the sun and wind working their magic to allow the combines to get back in the field. Thanks for your continued interest!
