Harvest has been a waiting game


A Michigan farmer says harvest is about a month behind on her Thumb-area farm.

Carla Schulz tells Brownfield dry bean harvest didn’t start until the end of September.

“We are really behind on harvest this year on our farm,” she shares.  “We just finished up combining dry beans, our black beans, planting wheat, and we haven’t even actually started soybeans because the moisture is too high.”

She says soybean harvest can hopefully start next week and the added moisture might come with some benefits.
