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
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.
October 16, 2013 We are just over a month into harvest and have it about 70% completed. Typically harvest has a slow
start as we wait for crops to mature. Then there is a period of rapid progress. By the third week of October
there are more delays due to weather, and the last couple weeks are also slowed by lines at our
delivery points. All in all - on schedule.
October 1, 2013 We made good progress with harvest in September. About 25% of the corn acres are harvested
and 12% of the beans.
September 24, 2013 An informational and well-attended Morning Refresher was held. Meanwhile the field crew
had a great day combining corn.
September 13, 2013 Corn harvest started today.
September 11, 2013 We have begun harvest! We started combining soybeans. Below average yield due to late season drought.
September 10, 2013 Keith, Randy, Adam and Mike attended a combine operations’ training session.
August 19, 2013 We enjoyed seeing everyone that was able to attended our annual Landowner Gathering!
August 1, 2013 Adam and Keith attended a Channel summer agronomy update conference in Davenport.
July 19, 2013 We are making progress on mowing ditches. Not much rainfall recently, but we are in good shape for now.
June 25, 2013 The landowner Morning Refresher Meeting was well attended. There was good discussion about recent land auctions, wet weather and crop conditions, the Farm Bill, etc.
June 24, 2013 Lots of rain in the area lately. Some fields in eastern Cedar County and western Clinton County had over five inches of rain. No crop damage however.
June 4, 2013 We had a short window again and got most of the remaining soybeans planted. We will
finish the small areas that are left as they are dry. Nice to be "almost done".
May 28, 2013 We had an inch of rain over the weekend. Over 90% of our beans are in the ground.
May 21, 2013 Corn planting was finished today. Now getting a good start on the beans.
May 2, 2013 Did not plant yesterday and today in anticipation of a cool rain coming. We have 1300 acres of corn planted.
April 28, 2013 Able to start planting today. We will plant at a slower pace due to cooler weather.
April 15, 2013 Cooler and wetter conditions than normal up to now. Last year spoiled us (earliest ever planting start).
Just two years ago we didn't have anything planted until May 1st which still produced near record yields.
March 26, 2013 The March Morning Refresher focused on QE3, variable rate planting and land values.
March 14, 2013 Spring AMS product training (JD) session was attended by Randy, Keith, Lori and Adam.
March 7 and 8 2013 Kevin attended the Eastern Iowa Agriculture Forum in Preston. Randy and Mike attended a
Precision Planting meeting in Welton.
