Corn harvest is underway for a Southwest Kansas farmer who says it’s been ugly so far.
David Schemm tells Brownfield he abandoned several fields and some yields have been in the single digits. “The fields that we’ve been looking at here initially have been only looking around 15-20. I think we have some other fields out there that might get 50 to 60, but again, we start to target 80-to-90-bushel dryland corn. We’re substantially off from what that typically is.
