Weather expert to farmers: Hurry up in harvest

Published 09/23/2010, The Daily Republic

State Climatologist Dennis Todey has some simple harvest advice for farmers: Don’t delay. Take advantage of every weather break you can to harvest your crops.
Todey, speaking Wednesday from his Brookings office, said that October is shaping up to be a wet month. Fall is starting off wet, said Todey, and after a brief respite, it is a trend that will continue.
The arrival of the fall equinox at 10:09 p.m. Wednesday officially signaled the start of autumn. The annual occurrence signals equal hours of daylight and darkness. From this point on, days will become shorter and nights longer.
