South Carolina Corn: Harvest Underway in the Pee Dee, Yields Look Good

A fair amount of corn was harvested last week.  Yields are looking good so far and we hope that trend continues.

The moisture is around 27% in this field, so the corn is heading to the dryer.

Rains are moving in this week and we are forecast to get 2-3 inches over the next 5 days in most places around the Pee Dee.  This will bring the combines to a screeching halt until all the rain clears up.  We need the rain on our other crops, so it’s not completely unwelcome.

Stink bugs came in early in some places and disease came in late.  Regardless, we’re looking at our second straight year of good corn.
