Corn and soybean crops are in good condition but the challenge for farmers is getting the crops harvested before the weather turns cold.  Late planting caused the crops to mature later than normal. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly update Monday that 60 percent of the corn crop is mature, well behind the five-year average of 70 percent. Soybeans are two percentage points behind the average. Just 7 percent of the Nebraska corn crop is harvested far less than the 16 percent average. About 6 percent of soybeans are out of the fields, behind the 17 percent average.   Winter wheat farmers, however, have planted 78 percent of the crop better than the 68 percent average

Further, we will discuss linkages between SCO enrollment and your individual insurance...

Federal prosecutors have dropped charges against an Aberdeen man accused of filing false crop insurance claims.   However, 53-year-old Nicholas Berbos has been fined $250,000 for attempting to bribe a witness.   Authorities say Berbos offered extra employment benefits to a worker in return for testimony in connection with the federal investigation.  Berbos pleaded guilty earlier and was sentenced Monday to five years of probation and the fine.  Berbos served 76 days in custody after a judge ruled in July that he violated terms of his bond by moving to Florida without notifying court officials or getting their permission.
