IowaJohn, I have a picture taken two years ago of an Oliver 88 in beans that were darned near to the top of the rear wheels. (13.6-38) This year in that same location the beans maybe go up to the axles. Come to think of it, I should drive the old girl out to the same spot tomorrow just for a comparison pic. I might be surprised. I'm 17 miles NE of Storm Lake and I'm estimating 42 bushel beans and 150 bushel corn. The average on my farm is 48 and 185. I have one rented 60 that's at least 25% drowned out. I saw it from the air a week ago. The herbicide program worked OK because all I saw was bare ground in the drowned spots but there's no corn there either. One 178 acre bean field looks great from the ground but the view from the air shows dozens of little bare spots where small puddles of water stood too long last spring.Jim

OK, here's an edit. What in the world happened to turn the eight in thirty eight in to a smiley face?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

you put a ) after the 8. an 8 with a ) after it makes a "cool" emoticon, because the 8 is like sunglasses on a smiley face 8)

really makes it hard to interpret sometimes... but I got what you were saying.

Jim, From your earlier posts I gathered that you were somewhere around Storm Lake/Cherokee area. You're closer to my BIL's that I originally thought. They Farm in the curlew/Emmettsburg area. I live NE of Harlan, I really wanted to go to the Albert City show but alas we had a family get together, hopefully next year. I'm still hoping for 160-70 corn and 40-45 beans. The warm weather we're s'posed to get next week will help bring the crops along. I hope that fall is warm and dry so we don't have to wait on dryers. I work by myself so if I can run and dump it goes alot faster. John
