Having spoken to a variety of Farmers in Simcoe County, we’re generally happy to see an end to 2021 harvest in sight if not already completed. Just to recap: dry, wet, dry, wet, wet, warmer wet, snow and warm again today as I write this but snow squall warning issued.

Beans seem to have come over with average yield, Lakers in many cases as there was no killer frost until end of October.

Some wheat in early showing stress from wetness, possibly compaction as well as some rust in a variety of fields. Latest planted wheat I know of was November 12.

Corn harvest is well under way with some complete.  Yields reported are higher than average with one farmer reporting 199 by/acre across all his farms.
