The Erie region's corn harvest nears the finish line, as farmers in the region can be seen on their John Deere combines in the fields. They are likely to be speeding through their property in an effort to gather every crop prior to the arrival of cold weather, according to the Erie Times-News.
The news source reported that Doug Meabon could be seen racing from one side of his field to the other on his used John Deere combine, as he was helping another Amity Township, Pennsylvania resident finish out the year's work.
According to the Times-News, the two farmers figured that they were near the end of the long season, and were lucky enough to have the harvest survive the flooded fields and summer droughts that threatened many of the crops in the region.
Agronomy Advice notes that corn is generally planted in the U.S. beginning in April and lasts into June, while it is harvested in October and is usually finished by the middle to end of November.
