Harvest has wrapped up for southwest Iowa farmer Ray Gaesser, and he says it was his worst crop in a decade.
“We had lots of downed corn we had to harvest this year because of a storm at the end of August,” he said. “And just in general it was dry and our stalk quality just wasn’t very good.”
He tells Brownfield some farmers in his area were more optimistic.
“Most people were fairly happy with their soybean yield, and some were even happy with their corn yield,” Gaesser said.
