I've noted often in the past 10 years the huge increase in corn and the hunters frustrated with deer holding out in the standing corn crops. So I keep tabs on the updated harvest statistics. Here's the latest from the Ag Statistics Service.
ND corn crop is 64% complete compared to last weeks 47% and the longterm average of 63%. Last year it was done. What I don't have is how many more acres of corn we have in North Dakota compared to 5 or 10 years ago. Essentially even if we would be 75% done but had 200% more corn acres..there'd still be more standing corn vs 10 years ago.
We'll see how things play out in the final 10 days of the season.
