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.
