Fall Harvest: Soy Beans

Soy beans are also a popular crop in Manitowoc.

I met up with Mr. Dale Wagner at one of his lands about two weeks after I started this project. I almost jumped as soon as I pulled up to his land.

It was the picture that I’d been looking for from the beginning of this project.

Dale Wagner, 55, harvest soy bean on his field at the interesction of Wisconsin Highway 42 and Borgwardt Lane on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Wagner and his business partners have about 220 acres of soy bean and 450 acre of corn to harvest.

The 30-acre land had got hills! The lines and the color of the field, AND the red combine. That was exactly what I had been wanted to capture!

 

After being threshed out, the soy bean grains can be seen from the back window in the combine on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Wagner said this year was a good crop year for farmers and he was at least two weeks ahead of a normal season.

Soy bean plants that are about to be harvested by Dale Wagner on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Soy bean has to be harvested in a dry condituion, preferably under the sun, so the farmers tend to start harvesting soy bean near noon and switch to corn harvesting after the sun goes down.
