Combines were able to get in the field the past 2 days thankfully, the weather hasn't made this last bit of harvest easy! But that's farming you see...
Farmers depend on the weather, to make sure their crops get enough water to grow or enough sunshine to grow or dry out when it's harvest time.
Temperature plays a huge roll too!
When weather is not in your favor in farming..it leads to money loss.
(Stay tuned for more on why weather changes and weather in general is important around the farm)
Today's focus on weather is during harvest!
When it rains during harvest:
farmers get behind which can lead to...
Many farms like Lively H, were out late last night trying to beat the rain coming in and trying to get soybeans out of the field.
So thankful for ALL the farmers and farms who run those late hours, and pray that they are able to get all of their crop out soon and finish up harvest 2019.
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
