The nation's farmers will harvest a record 14 billion bushels of corn, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicted today. The big crop has sent the price of corn plummeting, and that's cut costs for the beleaguered biofuel industry and others that rely on the grain.
Local sugar beet farmers weren't able to beat Mother Nature to the finish line for this year's harvest. They're dealing with heavy rains that are keeping them out of fields, along with the first frost of the season. Ag experts say this latest weather setback shouldn't pose a serious problem for farmers.
Continued rainfall is pushing back the 2013 sugar beet harvest. Throughout the last week several inches of rain has fallen on many fields forcing farmers to delay their harvests. Following a heavy rainfall on Saturday, farmers spent Sunday waiting for their fields to dry.
Fall harvest is also a time that presents dangers with overhead power lines and farm equipment. Contact between equipment and electric lines could cause electrocution. Minnkota Power wants to remind those working with farm equipment that knowing the location of power lines can save a life.
There was a short delay to the beginning of the sugar beet harvest this week because of warmer condition and now rain may again put things on hold. Rain has moved into the area, and farmers are now waiting to see how much they will get Friday.
Almost everyday since the American Crystal Sugar lockout, the nearly 1,300 idled employees have been vocal about rallying for their jobs.
Sugarbeet growers, however, have stayed relatively quiet on the lockout so far amidst concern replacement workers at American Crystal Sugar will not be able to handle harvest season.
Some of this fall's harvest is being stored on the ground, outside local elevators. Most farmers were able to get their crops harvested before the first snowfall, and were able to sell it to elevators at a fair market price.
