The Old Man's Turn

This past summer, Brian had an impressive yield performance from 25R26 soft red wheat, running 127 bu/acre.

This past Sunday, 92Y12 soybeans yielded 72 bu/acre at 12.7 moisture on my farm.   
I am old enough to remember when wheat yielded 72 bu and corn 127 bu.  My hat is off to a lot of smart breeders for giving us varieties that pack a punch.
Morris Sagriff, our agronomist has been pounding on me that we are growing soybean varieties that are too early.  We are giving up too much yield and worrying too much about getting wheat planted, according to Mo.
Our results are giving Morris some ammunition.
