Mother Nature Responsible for Harvest Delays

Mother Nature Responsible for Harvest Delays

OSMOND- The Huskers aren’t quite living up to their name this harvest season. Farmers in Nebraska have parked the combines as they wait for the rain to finally ease up.

Area farmers realize that rain is putting a damper on harvesting their crops. Roger Timmerman, a farmer near Osmond worries about harvesting rain-drenched soybeans.

Timmerman hopes to wrap up harvest by the end of October but says this year has been unusual.

Farmers Pride General Manager Dean Thernes also says harvest is behind schedule. Adding that the delay affects the economy.

Even with some disruption in harvest, there is still time to make progress- if the weather cooperates.

The crops need a few days of sun and without rain, so fields can become dry enough to get machinery going again.

Now the only thing farmers can do is wait out the weather.
