mark guildenzoph fastest harvest on record 09/26/2012 @ 7:22pm Wow, yes it is the fastest harvest on record and on one of the worst drought years in history. Almost explained the reasoning with one comment. Why do I have to explain this so plainly again. When there is no rain you get no crops having said that there is no reason for the continued decline except greedy profit takers. Whatever little crops are out there are so dry they are dieing off. This is caused by lack of rain in the most important stages of the plants. For example corn stalks are shriveling and snapping of in the slightest breeze, as well as the pods shattering and dropping beans because of brittleness and drying to quickly. For these reasons alone are why we farmers are so early and eager to get what crops we can before its all gone. The reason for the increased pace of the process is because the yields are so bad and low we can do twice the ground in half the time. It doesn't take a genius to look out a window and see there are no crops. Put a price on that and then call china idiots
