Rains lengthening harvest for MCGA president

The president of the Michigan Corn Growers Association is halfway finished with harvest.

Randy Poll tells Brownfield on and off rains for the past several weeks have kept tractors out of fields and brought an early end to winter wheat planting.

“We got maybe 75 percent in that we wanted, right now it is getting wetter,” he shares.  “Fields are soft so there’s not much fall tillage being done either.”

Poll says he feels thankful there haven’t been quality issues as the corn is used to feed his pigs and tested regularly for mycotoxins.
