Northwest Iowa — Almost all — but not quite all — of the corn has now been harvested in northwest Iowa. That’s from the latest Iowa Crop Progress and Condition report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service.
Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig says, “With corn and some soybeans still standing, this is the latest harvest since 2009, and farmers are anxious to finish up.”
Ben Torrance with the USDA tells us conditions again made it difficult for farmers to make much progress.
Here in northwest Iowa, the report says 97 percent of corn has been harvested.
The weekly report is also available on the USDA’s website at nass.usda.gov.
