Trent is pleased with his harvest progress so far. He has harvested about 80% of his soybeans and now will proceed on his corn crop. His corn is 30% harvested “because the beans were ready first, so we did them.” The weather has been unusually favorable the past few weeks, with very few rainy days to disrupt the field work. Trent is also happy with the recent upswing in soybean prices.
