With all the rain this year in Illinois and the late harvest of beans and corn will it affect the crop rotation for next year?

Nope, it really shouldn't effect rotations at all. Spring planting dates are what it's all about it... not Fall/Winter harvest dates.

Pretty much what he said. The only problem for us this year was not being able to Sept. plant winter wheat / alfalfa fields. We are an organic farm so we have to do that planting after sept. 15th. to avoid weavle problems but before frost..( alfalfa has to have it's 3rd. leaf before 1st. frost).

It is an incredible winter food source for the deer. The wheat gets combined for market. The 1st. cut of alfalfa/wheat straw gets sold for organic mulch (to rich city dwellers) then all alfalfa hay for 5 yr. usually 3 cuts/yr. Deer will hit alfalfa year round. then back to soy bean , corn rotation.
