Farmer harvests near Oppold Marina

Published: Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013 11:24 p.m. CDT

A farmer is busy harvesting soybeans in a field near the Oppold Marina south of Sterling Tuesday afternoon. The weather has soybeans behind schedule this season, so area farmers expect to do most of the harvesting work in October. Early USDA yield reports indicate that corn has held up well through the dry summer, but it's still too early to tell how soybeans have fared.
