Michiana harvest off to a strong start

NOW: Michiana harvest off to a strong start


Despite the welcomed weekend rain temporarily pressing pause for area farmers, the harvest is off to a good start across Michiana.

In Indiana, the corn harvest is in-line with the five-year average as the state sees a 10% increase in harvested corn compared to last year.

The soybean harvest in Michigan is off to a similarly strong start, with the 2020 harvest near the five-year average and well ahead of 2019.

Winter wheat planted is now at 40 percent in Michigan as well, ahead of both last year's progression and the five-year average.

With dry weather in the forecast for the next week, farmers should make significant additional progress on the harvest heading into the middle of this month.
