 Welcome to the Greenview Farms web page!

     Greenview Farms is a corn and soybean farm in eastern Iowa. It was started by Kevin and Lori Green in 1976 when they rented 160 acres. Since then we have maintained continuous growth.

Greenview Farms has successfully responded to new technology, a changing business environment, and uncertain markets.  Soil erosion prevention, high soil fertility, consistent weed control, and continuous communications with our business associates is evidence of the long view approach for cash renting at Greenview Farms.  

Greenview Farms Current Events

September 14, 2015  We were able to start harvest corn. Moisture and yields are looking very promising.

June 29, 2015   We had a well attended Morning Refresher with a discussion and demonstration of the drone.

May 29, 2015   After one more session out of the fields we were able to finish soybean planting on the 23rd.  The final custom seed corn planting (third pass on one farm) was done yesterday, so we are finished with the planting season!  Now we'll let those seeds do some growing!

May 8, 2015      We are almost a week out of the fields now, and the forecast looks like it may be two weeks before we will get back in.  The corn (even the pre-cold spell) has emerged with very good spacing and populations.  Soybean
planting was at 30% done before this rain period and is emerging and looking good.

May 2, 2015       We finished planting corn this evening!  Always a good feeling.  Now we'll concentrate on soybean planting.

April 15, 2015      We got both the 24-row and 36-row planters set this afternoon, so the planting season is underway!

April 6, 2015         We have started planting...sweet corn!  We have gotten waterway touch-ups and new seedings done.  Some                             tillage has begun also. 

February 9, 2015   The year is off to a good start.  The new agriculture program has taken time to learn and begin to comply with                                         the changes.  We have also been busy with winter meetings, moving snow and analyzing last year’s data. 

December 17, 2014  We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

November 17, 2014  We did finish harvest on the ninth - a couple days before we had snowfall!  Always nice to have that finished.
                 We had a chance to get some fall tillage done since then, so we are in good shape for the cold weather.

November 1, 2014    Yields have been good for both beans and corn.  We completed the bean harvest on October 27th and have           less than two weeks of corn to combine, so we are in good shape with the current weather forecast.

October 1, 2014       We were able to start harvesting corn on September 18th and soybeans on the 26th.  A later start than usual  for both due to late month beneficial August rains.

July 30, 2014          Kevin and Lori attended the Russell Consulting Group seminar in Moline, Illinois.

July 29, 2014   Mowing continues in ditches and along field edges. Sweet corn season has begun.

July 12, 2014          A windstorm blew away the rental shed where our three new combines were stored. Fortunately there is time  for them to be repaired before harvest, and they were fully insured.

June 3, 2014            With a couple big days we did get finished with soybean and custom seed corn planting on May 25th. Now we're starting on summer mowing, crop scouting and weed control.

May 24, 2014    Last week was a rain-out, but we have been able to start back at an "as dry" pace this week.  We have not                                       been able to run both bean planters full days since the corn was finished planting, but we hope to do that today and finish over this weekend. We finished planting corn on May 11th.

May 5, 2014              We were able to get back in the fields today for the first full day of planting since April 23rd.  We got the soybean planter started also.

April 24, 2014    Tillage continued the last ten days and the two corn planters got set on Saturday.  We made good progress on planting corn this week and are currently getting needed rainfall.  

April 15, 2014  We got some tillage done last week before the welcomed rains over the weekend. Now we are continuing
                       with cleaning up farms while we wait for the soil temp to warm up before we start to plant.

March 13, 2014     Hopefully the end of many snow moving days is insight! Keith and Randy attended a Dow nitrogen      management meeting. Machinery and office updates are being done to be ready for spring fieldwork.

January 31, 2014      It’s been meetings time! Randy & Kevin attended a Winfield Agronomy 5-year Outlook of Future Technology                                          session; Keith, Randy & Adam went to an Executive Ag Network Conference mostly composed of farm                                                  economics information; Keith, Randy, Adam & Mike attended a Precision Farming Technology meeting;                                                  Kevin went to a Channel Seed meeting on future seed technology; Lori attended Consumer/Farming                                                    Conversations and Monsanto Community Program sessions.

January 2014    Many days this month the guys were busy moving snow!

December 24, 2013   We wish all in our farm family a Merry Christmas and the blessings of peace, heath, and hope in the New Year

December 10, 2013   Tillage we wanted to do is done, and the equipment has been cleaned up and put away. 2013 office work is 
  being completed and 2014 planning is well underway.

November 7, 2013  We finished harvest this afternoon after having forty acres left when we got rain on Tuesday.  Always nice
                                  to be done!
