“Lots of people grew corn this year which is a good thing,” Dierckx said. “It’s just not going to be as bountiful a yield as we had hoped for.”
As the final harvest of the season quickly approaches, Dierckx and other members of the farm bureau can only sit back and hope for consistent rain, warm weather and a late killing frost of the season.
“It’s not been as bright a looking picture as we had hoped for at the end of July but we’re still not as bad as we were last year,” Dierckx said. “The crop has held in there pretty good so far so we just wait and see. But, there will be some corn that will disappoint some people that’s for sure.”
