Combine in AdFarm corn now
That whirring sound you hear? Should make AdFarm North Dakota shareholders want to cheer.
Today, the combine is in the AdFarm North Dakota corn field, harvesting our 2010 crop, which is Pioneer 39D97.
Cooperating Farmer Fred Lukens explains: “We finished combining soybeans on our farm yesterday. We’ve heard reports of neighbors combining their early corn in the 18% moisture range. Neighbors report early corn yields in the 140 bu/acre range.”
Room in the air bin
“Busch allowed us to haul in nearly 30,000 bushels of malting barley, so we have room for our seed soybeans and about 20,000 bushels of air bins with big fans suitable for corn. If the AdFarm corn is under 22%, which is a safe bet, we’ll put the AdFarm corn directly into these air bins for final drydown. It should be dry by the end of November, although there are many variables,” Fred says.
Shareholders, we’ll keep you posted. You can also read Fred’s own blog post on the AdFarm N.D. corn
