MN Farmers Nearly Finished with Harvest


Despite some chilly temps and scattered rain and snow, farmers are are just about done with harvesting soybeans in Minnesota.
Only 3 and a half days were suitable for fieldwork last week, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
98 percent of soybeans have been harvested, trailing two weeks behind last year and the five year average.
As for corn, the end is also in sight. 93 percent of the corn crop has been harvested, about four days ahead of last year but three days behind the five year average.
Fall tillage is also being slowed by Mother Nature.
With the frozen ground, the USDA says many farmers are being forced to wait to complete tillage next spring.
