Harvest Postponed Due To Rain – Harvest Set For October 5th.

The harvest will now take place on Wednesday, October 5th. Join us as we harvest 160 acres of soybeans in world record time and raise funds to end global hunger! All proceeds from the harvest will be donated to Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Canadian Foodgrains Bank post. 10/03/2011

 

Record soybean harvest bumped again

A record-setting attempt at the fastest soybean harvest is now set for Wednesday afternoon as wet weather hampers the effort. Originally scheduled for Friday, the event was postponed to Monday. But when more wet weather moved through Perth County Sunday afternoon and soaked the 160-acre soybean field, organizers of the Harvest for Hunger were forced to reschedule again. “We will not have much of chance at a world record if one or two of the combines plug up because the soybean plants are damp,” said Randy Drenth, the chair of the five-farmer group that has spearheaded this fundraiser for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

New Date Set for Record Soybean Harvest, October 5

A 10 minute world record harvest of 160 acres of soybeans will now be attempted on Wednesday, October 5. The Harvest for Hunger Committee had no choice but move the date a second time after a weather system moved through Perth County, Ontario on Sunday afternoon and again soaked the 160 acres of soybeans. “We will not have much of chance at a world record if one or two of the combines plug up because the soybean plants are damp,” noted Randy Drenth, the chair of the five-farmer group that has spearheaded this fundraiser for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Soybean harvest record attempt delayed again

An attempt to set a world record for fastest soybean harvest has been delayed again. Originally scheduled for Friday, the event had been put off until Monday due to a 70% chance of rain in the forecast. But Mother Nature continues to be unco-operative. The beans became soaked Sunday afternoon as a weather system moved through the area. The organizing committee said it hoped to set a new date on Sunday. The goal is to raise $200,000 for Canada Foodgrains Bank, an agency in which 15 national Christian churches or their hunger relief agencies co-operate. Stratford Beacon Herald story. 10/02/2011
