An early fall and/or a short growing season can mean some hard decisions regarding the harvest, storage, and use of corn, sorghum, and soybean crops. The first damaging frost date will be the key to the harvest and storage method. It will be much easier if you plan for alternate methods prior to the frost date so that the crop can be harvested with the most efficient method for the respective operation.
