TERRE HAUTE, IN (WTHI) - We are officially in harvest season across the Wabash Valley. Many farmers already have high expectations on this year's yield. The dry weather has definitely played a big role this season. Many farmers have started to harvest their crops since late September.
We spoke with Brad Burbrink with BE-N-AG farms in Vigo county to see how this season is shaping up. Burbrink says we could have used a little more rainfall but even with the dry conditions, things are looking great.
"All in all we are very satisfied with the yields and it's always fun to get harvest up and going and be where we are at today. With it being in early October and having a fair amount harvested already is always exciting."
BE-N-AG Farms says they are already up to 25% done for this season which is ahead of schedule. They will continue working day in and day out since the forecast is calling for very low rain chances in the coming week.
Burbrink wishes all of the farmers across the Wabash Valley to have a safe harvest season. He also mentions keeping an eye on your combines since it has been a very dry year.
