They were in the mid-40s over 300-some acres of double-crops. Even some of the beans we planted July 18 still made it in the upper 30s. On our first field we were hoping for 50 but it actually went 49. They matured great.The wheat looks great. The moisture we got helped it and the warm temperatures have it off to a really good start.It was probably one of the best years we’ve had for beans. One non-GMO variety that we plant could have been better on yield. It is an old variety and it does well for how old it is. We ended up averaging around 69 on beans. The last fields we had were in the low 60s and brought the average down.The corn high yield was a field averaging 240 and the lowest average yield was around180 bushels. Very few fields went below 200. It wasn’t a record yield for corn but it was still good. After talking to other people we can’t complain about 2016. With the way the fall went, it makes you feel good about doing it again next year.Prices stayed better than I anticipated with there being such a big crop out there. We sell double-crops straight to market because we can’t hold them and they were close to a dollar higher than last year.The wheat acres did extremely well with the wheat crop, the straw and a 40-bushel double-crop average. The income off of those acres was probably the highest.last_img
