Wind Damaged Corn

We’ve heard a lot about wind damage to corn but I guess it’s not just limited to here in Ohio. Pam Fretwell, Conklin Companies, was working here at the Farm Science Review and shared a few photos of the damage in Illinois. That’s going to be tough to harvest!

He says they had been running for two days and that they were getting between 130 to 150 bushels with 18 to 20% moisture. I asked him what’s new from New Holland and he says it’s …

Precision Ag At Farm Science Review

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

Harvesting corn and soybeans isn’t the only field demonstration you’ll see at the Farm Science Review. There’s also a section devoted to precision agriculture. I went out to the field when these got started and spoke with John Deere’s Jamie Bultemeier (pictured on the left). He was conducting a precision tillage demonstration. Jamie’s an agronomist by training so he focuses …

Reviewing Farm Science

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

I think this year’s Farm Science Review has had the best weather of any farm show I’ve ever attended. Of course they had to go through some nail-biting times just prior to the show when the remnants of Hurricane Ike blew through. In this week’s show I talk with show manager, Chuck Gamble. He says he’s all about promoting agriculture. …

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

Speaking of corn, how about soybeans? They were also ready to harvest here locally at the Farm Science Review. Mid afternoon a selection of combines like this one from New Holland sprang into action in front of the crowd. I didn’t get any data on the crop but it looked pretty good. Although we had some rain early in the …

We finally got to see corn being harvested at a farm show this fall. I went out to the fields and just missed seeing the combines in action. However, I got up above a grain wagon being unloaded for this shot and took a short video clip of it too. I’m not sure how many acres were harvested today but …

Farm Science Review Field Demos

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

Field demonstrations got into full swing this afternoon at the Farm Science Review. I think this is the first show to be able to provide in-field demos and farmers were out to see the show. You really couldn’t have had better weather to harvest corn and soybeans and demonstrate tillage and manure spreading. The breeze even blew away from the …

The Roush Ford F-150 on display at the Ohio Propane Gas Association exhibit here at the Farm Science Review is the big draw. With high diesel prices it’s easy to understand why. On hand to talk about it is Roush Vehicle Marketing Coordinator, Taylor Bloor. He drove the vehicle down from Michigan. It’s a bright white truck that runs on …
