UNDATED (LEARFIELD) – Minnesota agriculture expert Kent Thiesse(tee-see) says conditions as of now are set for a good corn harvest. Thiesse says one problem producers may have is a good one in the big picture:
“If the crop ends up bigger than expected, quite a bit bigger, they may run into issues with not having enough space to store all of their crop,” said Thiesse. “Same with some of the elevators and ethanol plants and that type of thing. We could see corn piled on the ground, and stored if we have really big yields, which we haven’t seen for a few years.”
Last year there was a shortage of LP gas which wreaked havoc with the harvest, but Thiesse says he’s heard of no such supply issues this year.
