Southeast Nebraska farmer Nathan Dorn says he recently wrapped up harvest and his corn and soybean crops were variable.
“Everything under the pivot was phenomenal. We had a great irrigated year.”
But, Dorn tells Brownfield, dryland yields were 50 to 75 percent below trendline. “We couldn’t catch a rain in July or August. Even in September, we had a rain on Labor Day. I think between the Fourth of July and today, we had a rain on Labor Day, and I think that was just about it.
