Farmers make progress in the fields 20 Oct 17

Farmers made good progress this last week thanks to warm weather and dried out field conditions. Ag Expert Wayne Schoper says nearly all soybeans have dropped leaves and 45 percent of the crop is in the bin. Schoper says with good seedling survivability and a good harvest stand, yields are projected to be high. Schoper adds that high yields have saved the day when it comes to low commodity prices. He says soybean yields are good, but with prices still low farmers will continue to have a very tight margin.
