Euphoria greets harvest

The report from field to field and farm to farm is the same — soybean yields are amazingly high, even those that followed wheat.

“This is probably the best year I’ve had,” said Craig Mentzer, who farms north and east of Neosho Falls, and he’s been at it full time since the late 1970s.

Between Iola and Humboldt, “It’s a superb year,” said Shawn Geffert. The real corker for Geffert is, in addition to typical high yields from full-season beans, those he planted after wheat did so well. “Some last year made 35 bushels (on his fertile bottom ground) but this year are in the high 40s and low 50s,” unheard of hereabouts.
