MONROE - Despite recent delays due to rainfall, fall harvest is looking as if it could produce some of the best yields on record in a generation for Green County farmers. "Overall this has been one of the best years I've seen for crop production in Green County," said Mark Mayer, the University of Wisconsin-Extension agriculture agent for the county. "However, the down side this year is that many of the commodity prices are 25-40 percent lower than the past three-year average, leaving farmers with very slim profit margins despite the high yields," he added.
