Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We’re trying to get ready to start harvesting. We have some early beans I think we could run this week. I haven’t checked the corn moisture yet but I was thinking it would be a couple more weeks before we start much corn.We have caught a few rains. I think in the last week we had over an inch in two different rains. I know some areas around us have gotten as much as two or three inches. We haven’t gotten as much as we’d like but I do think it has been helping. Even some more this week would still help I think.With the early corn, I am confident it is going to be a pretty good crop. The later corn, I don’t know. We know it is hurt but we don’t know how bad it is hurt. I am worried about the stalk quality. It is definitely going to be a concern. If we start getting some rain and some windy conditions it is going to be a problem. I don’t think it matters what brand or what hybrid, those problems are present out in the fields.With soybeans it is kind of the same thing. They do seem to be podded fairly heavily. I don’t think it is going to be the best crop we’ve ever had but I don’t think it is going to be the worst crop either. We are going to hit our early beans first and get the early group IIIs run. The later beans are still several weeks out.We are getting geared up and I hope we have a nice fall and that everyone has a safe harvest. We’d like to get a dry fall to get this crop off and get some tillage done to break up the compaction that is out there.
Striker Dmytro Zayikin scored four goals to propel a consistent Dynamo Kyiv from Ukraine to the Subroto Cup title with a 5-2 win over MSP Higher Secondary School from Malappuram, Kerala, in the final on Monday.The losers punched above their weights but failed to threaten the Kiev-based Dynamo, who ended up with mind boggling 34 goals in seven matches and conceded only two, both in the final.Rostyslav Taranukha scored the fifth goal while Muhammed Sabith scored a brace for MSP, which was playing its maiden Subroto final. Going into the final at the Ambedkar Stadium, everyone was wondering how many more goals Dynamo would score in the title clash, given their prolificacy.The 3,000-odd crowd lent a festive touch to the setting and it seemed to unsettle the Dynamo players in the initial period of the match. Muhammed Safeer of MSP took a shot at the goal in the seventh minute but the ball sailed over the bar.Dynamo found their stride and drew the first blood in the 10th minute through Zayikin. MSP conceded the second goal three minutes later and Zayikin made no mistake in scoring from close range. MSP then responded strongly and breached the Dynamo defence for the first time in the tournament.Salman K’s pass split the backline and found Sabith, who slotted it past the goalkeeper. The goal seemed to have a galvanising effect on the Dynamo players and they pumped in two more goals before halftime.Zayikin completed his hat-trick in the 29th minute and Taranukha scored in the 25th minute to take the game away from MSP. In the second half, Zayikin scored his fourth goal to dash all hopes of a ‘Liverpoolesque’ comeback.advertisementBut the Kerala boys, cheered by a vociferous crowd, battled hard. They got their reward in the 54th minute when Sabith again found the net with a clinical finish. It was only a blip for the Ukrainian side that kept the sporadic MSP attacks at bay.The spirit of MSP players was acknowledged by Dynamo coach Serhii Bezhenar, who said that it was the best opposition they had come up against in the tournament. “This team always looked keen to score and we were tested by them,” Bezhenar said.He said that his players were a bit overawed by the atmosphere and that was the reason why his players took time to settle down. “The players were initially overawed by the ambience.But this was a great learning experience for our players,” said Bezhenar, who last visited India in 1991 as part of the USSR junior team that played in the Nehru Cup.
