Harvest underway on southwest Minnesota farm

A southwest Minnesota farmer says harvest is just getting started.

Mark Enninga of Fulda tells Brownfield recent rains have helped even out his soybeans.

“There’s a few guys taking out some (earlier) corn, moistures are drier than most people are expecting. Which is a good thing (because) people can get started on that.”

He says early yields are better than expected.

“Given our dry late summer that we had, July and August very little rain.”

Enninga anticipates some harvest challenges this fall with green stem soybeans on lighter soil and goose-necked corn in fields with rootworm pressure.
