    Good luck to ya😎 Reply With Quote

  • farmaholic's Avatar Sep 15, 2019 | 21:47 4 Sampled some hand thrashed canola....untestable. Off the charts and still too green. Only cut on Sept 3. And most of the days since then have been wet and cool.

    Our wheat swaths are stoopid wet(my problem)...and sprouting in them.

    Someone tried standing wheat mid afternoon today...19.7....yikes. Reply With Quote

    Kinda all over. Good areas in fields that held moisture through June are good . Some areas did dry out a bit .
    Peas were not real good , maybe 40 on average in area.
    Wheat is decent on average.
    Canola , just starting . Hopefully make average

    Overall it’s ok considering we had 5 inch’s or less of rain over the growing season

    Sep 15, 2019 | 23:29 8 Hopefully average will cut it this year. Gonna be tough to make some money this year with average yields and poor prices. Reply With Quote

    Exactly, prices down way too far.
    Net income will be down huge if prices don’t recover . Fine if you have huge yields , but that not the case in this area . And now the down grading game will start in cereals making it worse for those crops.
    Some area far worse off than here though. A lot of areas will have severe sprouting .... that will kill net returns Reply With Quote
    fjlip's Avatar Sep 16, 2019 | 08:30 10 Looks hopeless up here, wheat 23, peas 20, canola down 3 weeks off chart. Only Barley, standing 14.5!
    Hot today but HUMID tomorrow dries shit! Then chances of T storms? Reply With Quote
    Sep 16, 2019 | 12:06 11 Ya the weather forecast looks wet again from Tuesday night on. Could be over inch if u get hit by Thunder boomer. Any cereals left out after this event will be totally buggered. Grounds getting soft for trucks and low spots a little scary if u don’t hit the hydro Reply With Quote

    Sep 17, 2019 | 07:21 13 I can't remember the last day we had without rain. We've done some peas, moisture and yield about the same. Reply With Quote

    Your so lucky. Moisture is higher than yield on some fields here. Lol Reply With Quote

    Sep 17, 2019 | 08:10 17 Metcalfe barley straight cut yesterday down to 14%. That’s dry for feed and I’m sure that’s what it will be at 33% chitted. Yield is OK. Reply With Quote
    fjlip's Avatar Sep 17, 2019 | 08:52 18 Neighbor finishing up barley 12.9%, rest was 15-18. Wheat got to 15.6 by 9pm. Pioneer Wadena still grading wheat as #2. Reply With Quote
    Sep 17, 2019 | 09:48 19 Standing wheat got to 15 yesterday late afternoon but it is a struggle to get the combine up and back . Wheat sample looks decent! Reply With Quote
