This year's corn harvest is off to an earlier start than normal and progressing quickly, according to a Purdue University Extension corn specialist.

Bob Nielsen, professor of agronomy, said the crop has grown quickly and matured early. It has dried well in the field, which means farmers should spend less on mechanized drying methods to bring grain down to desired moisture levels. Most of the crop could be harvested by early October if Indiana continues to have dry weather.
