Fall Crop Tour hits northern Illinois

Here's an area with a lot of yield highs and lows (photos by Mike McGinnis & Christian Rizzi).
Dwight Olson farms just north of Interstate 88 near Maple Park, Illinois. His corn has averaged 185 bushels/acre and soybeans 55 to 60 bu/acre. He's having a good year, having been fortunate enough to receive July rains that others did not. He knows that not too far up the road, the harvest picture looks much different.
