Southern Minnesota farmer on the cusp of soybean harvest

Harvest is just days away for a south-central Minnesota farmer.

Andy Bakken of Albert Lea says some of his soybeans have reached maturity.

“We did plant kind of a full spectrum of beans this year, so we’ve got some 1.4’s and 1.7’s and then into the 2.0’s. We’ve got one farm that we’re going to try and do a little tiling (on), and we’ve got some hog manure, pits are starting to get full, so we’ve got to get out there.”

Some of the early varieties are coming out in Bakken’s area and he’s hearing yields are better than expected.
