Description

The Midwest has just experienced two harsh winters in a row, a wet Spring, lagging Growing Degree Days, slow development of crops, record high yield in the field, Fall rain (and floods), and record moist grain and soy at harvest. Although there are a few who do remember when everyone helped with harvest AFTER Thanksgiving Dinner, most of us were convinced that it was better equipment that got the crops in. It turns out that weather may have had an impact all along.
