Local farmers’ expectations are varying on this year’s crops.
McHenry County farmer Harry Alten anticipates a later harvest than normal with corn that isn’t as high in quality as the past.
“I think the harvest is going to be late," he said. "There’s a lot of corn that will be high in moisture content, unless they planted some earlier varieties. And the quality usually when you get wet corn like that – high in moisture content I should say – the quality is not there. And it’s going to be a problem.”
