Combining of beans is in full swing today and although exceptional yields up to 45 bushels per acre are reported in isolated fields, the Kossuth crop is expected to run between 30 and 35 bushels per acre. This would be the highest in history, topping 29.6 per acre yields in 1961 and 1965. And De Valois reported the 1966 corn yield could 'top the 90.9 bushel per acre yield of 1964. This would be far above the expected 86-per bushel yield predicted for the State, of Iowa ISOLATED LOW fields, several of which were in the Whittemore area, got fairly heavy frost Wednesday night when the mercury plummeted to 36 degrees in the Algona area. "A heavy frost right now would be bad for the corn," DeValois said. "Most of it still needs another 10 days to mature to* whire a ffbsl would* -not damage the crop." ' He added that the south half of the county is a "little dry" and predictions of top yields in this area are not quite as optimistic now as they were a month ago. All of the Kossuth county corn is past the dough stage and about 90% of the corn is dented. The crop is generally about a week or two ahead of a normal year.

In averages over the past five years, the corn crop has jumped from 74.1 bushels in 1962 to 90.9 in 1964. Last year's crop dipped to 83.5 bushels, mostly because of wet weather in September.
