Ideal weather conditions has put Minnesota harvest ahead of normal pace

Minnesota’s corn and soybean harvest are both well ahead of normal pace.

Conditions have been nearly ideal for harvest across much of Minnesota as several extended periods of warm and dry weather allowed farmers to get an early start. Temperatures have been above normal for weeks and there has been no threat of frost. That has caused a slowdown in the soybean harvest in some areas because stems are still alive while the beans themselves, in some cases, are too dry.
