ABSTRACT
In this article the author examines the state of corn and soybean harvest in the U.S. through October 25, 2009. Only 44 percent of the soybeans had been harvested and only 20 percent of the 2009 corn harvest had been put in the bin, making it the slowest harvest since the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) began monitoring in 1985. Lower test weights in corn is expected to keep yields from exceeding the high 160-bushel.
