Corn harvest began in mid-July in Richland Parish and early yields are good. With approximately 5-10% of the acreage harvested, yields reports are ranging from 180-220 dry bushels per acre. Grain moisture is 19-22% which are getting dried and going to bins. Planting dates on harvested corn started with mid-February to first week of March plantings on corn currently being harvested. One farm has harvested about 600 acres with center pivot yields at 200 bu/a and furrow irrigated around 225 bu/a. Corn yields normally get better as harvest progresses but time will tell.
