Cayuga County, Colleen Cargile: Mild and dry weather has allowed many acres to be harvested this week. Most of the soybeans in the county have been harvested at this point, but there are still some fields standing here and there. It finally seems like producers are putting a dent in all of the corn acres that were still standing. I saw many combines out harvesting this week. However, many producers say that harvest is slow because it is taking so long to dry the corn down. Hopefully this stretch of nice weather lasts a little bit longer to allow everyone to finish up with harvest.

Genesee/Niagara/Orleans counties, Nathan R Herendeen: Some grain corn and some soybean harvest under wet soil conditions. Last week's snow melt made soils and subsoil wetter. We need a hard freeze before the next snowfall!!

Livingston County, Dean R Pendergast: Corn harvest is progressing well but moisture levels are above average for this time of year. There are still soybeans in the field to be harvested.

Ontario County, Joann Rogers: Ontario County continues with the fall harvest of corn for grain, with a few soybeans still need to be harvested.
