Farmers work year round in hopes that during harvest season that they’ve created their best crops yet. While that may be their goal, often times their harvest is effected by factors beyond their control.
Frank Miklozek, a local farm owner, says this year’s harvest has been good but not the best.
Weather is the number one factor in producing a good crop and recent winds have played a role, especially with corn.
Heavy rains can also have a negative impact on any beans that may be planted as it causes a longer waiting time to produce high quality beans.
Although a few weather and technical issues, Miklozek says he is still happy with his farm’s harvest.
“It’s been going pretty good besides a few mechanical snafus at the beginning but we worked through those. Had a little bit of corn that was down a little bit but the beans have been coming out pretty good,” says Frank Miklozek, farm owner.
Some farmers, including Miklozek, have already planted cover crops for the next harvest.
