We need a hard frost so the corn will dent. Silage cornfields have very little corn left in them after chopping. I am surrounded by over 400 acres of corn this year, it has been a literal zoo. :)

If it froze before the corn dented it would be a wreck! Corn dents way before it is ready to harvest. You would want it to go to black layer and then freeze or else you would ruin corn not help it. Sorry is sound like a dick but i just wanted to correct you.

I would think that it can only be 2 or 3 more weeks untill the majority of corn is taken off...............That sounds about right doesent it?
Maybe down south but here in nodak it will be a month before corn is harvested. It is really far behind this year so its gonna be late. You will see some early maturing corn combined early but for the most part it will be standing for a while.

And your point is... because I know you aren't suggesting that geese and ducks don't visit these fields.
Totally depends on the farmers, if they do a clean job of chopping there is no corn left in the field. If they do a crappy job of chopping there is corn left in the field. When corn is harvested with combines it leaves corn in the field because some passes through the sieves. 8)

Harvesting is spotty. Best to look for the ag reports on what percentages of grain having been harvested in the different areas of ND.

Does anyone have those general reports? They discuss them weekly on the KFYR AG report.

A better way to ask the question would have been "Hey guys how much of the corn harvest is happening right now? Is there alot of corn still standing up there?"

Thanks!

What did you correct? To me you agreed, If it dries down natural it dents, if it dries down from frost it dents. I live in ND.
