Corn does not need late harvest

The general perception is that the late planting season locally means a late harvest season. Kewaunee County Agricultural Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says planting happened into mid-summer.

 


Corn is a commodity at the seed level and as a final product. Farmers in the winter contract for seeds to be delivered assuming normal weather patterns. Once it was known that would not be the case in the area, those seeds got sent to other parts of the country and around the world. Seeds planted here had a maturity in some cases of under 90 days. Corn for most farmers would have been ready mid-September if it wasn't for the consistent rainfall.
