French Comments on the Fall Harvest and the Farm Bill


Reno County farmer Jim French gave us an update on how the fall harvest is going in his area.  French said the corn harvest is progressing with yields running from 80 to 140 bushels per acre.  He also talked about problems with too much moisture and flooding in several areas.  While that creates problems for the harvest, it encourage some growers to plant more wheat this fall.  Finally, French discussed the Conference Committee work on the new Farm Bill, which began on Wednesday.
