Though the forecast looks mainly warm and dry through the next week, some crops still standing in the field have likely incurred damage from moisture and cooler temperatures in the last two weeks. Soybean conditions, especially, can erode quickly for any crop still in the field. If your crop has frozen or is exceedingly wet in the field as fall advances, the first step is to give your crop insurance agent a heads-up, especially if you don’t think you’ll get your beans out of the field. And don’t plan on leaving soybeans in the field over the winter; they’re less capable than corn of overwintering in the field. As you continue harvest, make sure your equipment is working for you — not against you — in preventing yield loss because of combine settings. Finally, make sure you’re drying cool, wet soybeans at the right temperature to prevent splitting and cracking in storage. See more tips here.
