Same here but there is no global warming. Earliest wheat and soy harvest we have ever seen in 60 years. Reply With Quote

so its happened before 60 years ago... a warm early harvest...

Earliest I remember being finished combining was sept 5.....was still swathing and not much other than summer fallow and wheat in the rotation...no talk of climate change but got a lot of work done that fall and enjoyed it....hunted a few game birds...hauled bales in nice weather...

Weather is to be enjoyed not used as a weapon to phuck an economy...

  • Sep 21, 2020 | 10:03 6 I doubt very much that it will blow like that even remotely out here. Dry as it is in places, there is a lot of crop residue that will hold the soil. I think it is quite bizarre to state it will look like this in the garden of eden next spring.

    Unless the recreational tillers head out again this fall. Reply With Quote

    I finished on August 28th where I live. August harvest very commonplace here in this corner of the province. Drought will do that. Reply With Quote

    I am guessing a 15 bus crop not 50. Reply With Quote

    Sep 21, 2020 | 13:54 11 Heading out to harvest almost dry wheat this afternoon that has been swathed for a week on Sept 21. Miraculously there has not been a rain shower on it. Must be global warming. We normally harvest when there is a foot of snow on the ground. Was 17.5% saturday evening. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 21, 2020 | 20:48 12 See slough bottoms that have been under water for20 years, before that some had 30 years of poplar tree growth.
    Wonder what odds are of getting crops by working them up to get in shape for cropping?
    Think it is worth the gamble, extended dry years about as likely as wet ones. Reply With Quote

    Different worlds ... Harvest still not hardly underway in some areas of far NWSask ... cool summer with very low GDD .
    Warm temps helped for a bit but not enough Trns of thousands of acres frozen yet again , third year in a row in many areas with early frost damage. Reply With Quote
    Sep 21, 2020 | 21:02 14 Recall past dry years when we cultivated land in order to control perennial weeds.
    Snow used to blow off and collect along fence lines and field edges.
    Not unusual to get twice the yield on first outside round or two.
    Thankful for herbicides that allow us to leave stubble standing and direct seeding. Reply With Quote

    in 02 , i was hunting elk in the bottom of "old jacks lake" about 15-20' deep when it was wet
    old f-uker next door told me it would never have water in it again
    next summer it was full and i caught a big jack in it
    cycles, ? wtf , or temporary climate change Reply With Quote
    Sep 23, 2020 | 02:48 19 We have a small lake in the back yard and it was dry for 40 years, but the last 10 it’s been mostly full.
    It’s almost dry again. It’s just weather. Reply With Quote
