Keep harvest on course

Jeff Caldwell 09/16/2013 @ 3:08pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

It's time to get into the field and bring in the 2013 corn and soybean crops. Though this year's volatile weather may have stripped away some of your yield potential, there's still a crop out there. And after a season full of guesses, estimates, speculation, anxiety, and more, the wheels are rolling. Here are a few features to help make sure this important season goes smoothly for you.

How's harvest progress so far? Check out some of the latest reports from farmers around the country, share your own photos, and see how your crops stack up to the folks' down the road!

 

 


 

First, is your machine all ready to rock and roll? There are a few key adjustments you can make to get your combine working at its smoothest and most efficient. See those ideas and more here!


 

What about your grain bins? Make sure your bins are ready to go this fall with these maintenance tips. Start from the top down. The roof can cause the most damage to your grain.


 

The way crop conditions are shaping up -- with a lot of potential for downed stalks and ears if the malnourished, thirsty crop is left in the field too long -- many farmers are starting to roll. And, healthy cash-basis levels don't hurt for farmers who are looking to capture every dollar they can from another year of subpar corn yields.
