A neighbor a couple of miles south of my house is the THE first to till his fields in the spring, THE first to plant, and THE first to harvest his crop.
The past several years I noticed that after he harvests his soybeans, his field would turn green. I figured out that his green was attributed to the soybeans sprouting and growing after his harvest.
This year he purchased a new Case IH combine, new corn head and platform for soybeans and small grains. I was anxious to see how his harvest went this year, comparing previous post-harvest regrowth to this year's results.
This evening on the way into town, I snapped a couple of pictures of his harvested land. I realize they are far off, but the area beyond the road ditch is the bean field. It should not have green growth, certainly not to the point you can see the combine tracks (on the diagonal) can be seen better in the second picture when zoomed in.
Keep in mind this field is about a 1/2 mile wide, and a mile long or roughly 320 acres. Imagine the bushels of beans left behind. It boggles the mind to think that as low as commodity prices are, one would do everything in their power to maximize their harvested yield.
The bottom line here (like many aspects of life) is that the best equipment in the world will not fix poor management. Never has, never will.
