We would call that bottom picture Milo or it is also called grain sorghum. We’d hunt pheasants in it where it was left unpicked. They were very comfortable in there with the cover and food all in one. The pheasants would run out the end, go over about 10 rows and duck back in . Worked good for them until the German Shorthaired Pointers would figure the game out. They grow it in SW Iowa.

I always see soybeans at a distance so they look different to me from close up. I love yellow soybean fields but usually see green. At least, I think I know when I am looking at yellow soybean fields!

I am used to seeing soybean fields low to the ground. These seem much higher. Maybe a different variety.

Got to talk with my friend Dave today, and mentioned the yellow soybeans. He said it's probably from too much water (unless you're in So.Calif., then it's too little water; similar result!). The dilution inhibits the rate of nutrient absorption. Green is the best color for plants, generally.

Soybean maturity

Where we live in East central Iowa, soybeans are widely planted including adjacent to our property every other year and every year as part of the rotation somewhere on our farm ground in Tama County Iowa. They grow about theee feet highb bloom, set pods and mature in about 65 days. By late August and into September the leaves turn yellow, dry up and fall off by the end of September in most years. The stem and seed pods remain and dry down to about 15% moisture. Then they are harvested with a combine with a bean head that clips the whole plant off, separates the pods, shells the pods and ejects all the chaff back onto the field and the beans go into the hopper where they are off loaded into carts, wagons, waiting semi trailers etc. If you want to see them harvested, run them through your fingers, see crop dusters flying 15 feet off the ground, under the electric lines as they spray for aphids, let me know and we’ll do it next summer. We only have to walk about 200 feet out the back door. We had corn behind the house this year, next year it will be beans. They say I’m outstanding in my field.
