AL HANSEN, of Belmond, augers soybeans into grain carts Monday. He was on his second day of soybean harvesting. This field was planted June 7 using a 1.9 maturity bean. His yield monitor was showing a range of 14 to 55 bushels per acre, he said. Hansen estimated that the average will be in the 40s. He was harvesting where he could find dry soybeans knowing he will have to return for the re- planted beans that are still green. “I just want this year to be over,” said Hansen.
