  • Mixed report on 2016 Harvest

    Harvest is nearing an end and LaRue County farmers are discovering how good or bad their crop yields are for 2016.

    “Early planted corn and soybeans were excellent. We’ve had several reports of 250 plus bushel corn, and 80+ bushel soybeans early in the harvest season,” said Daniel Carpenter, LaRue County Extension Agent for Ag and Natural Resources. “But as we’ve started harvesting more of the later planted crops, the yields have been dropping drastically, especially in corn.”
