Harvesting of Oats and Wheat has begun in Mitchel County. The delay in wet weather has allowed for maturity and drying down. Now the fields are ready to be harvested.
In terms of Fusarium head blight, there is nothing we can do now except harvest early, turn up the air during harvest and separate bad fields. Growers are encouraged to blow as much air as possible to take out the lower test weight/shriveled grain
