Southeast Nebraska farmer Don Bloss says his corn, soybean and grain sorghum yields this fall were above-average, despite a wide variation in rainfall throughout the growing season.
Bloss says conditions were dry through most of the summer, followed by a wet late summer and fall.
“But the crops turned out pretty good—they were above-average,” Bloss says. “They weren’t excellent, but everything kind of held out until we started getting some rain the last part of August.”
Bloss, who does not irrigate, says corn and grain sorghum yields were generally in the 120 to 130 bushel range.
