Posted By Community On @ 6:23 am In Today's Local News | Comments Disabled
Again last week, weather conditions gave farmers in southeast Iowa little opportunity to continue with field work. The USDA reports southeast Iowa had just over a half day suitable for fieldwork last week, compared to a day and a half suitable for the state. The report indicates corn rated 2% very poor, 5% poor, 18% fair, 52% good, and 23% excellent. 94% of soybeans have emerged statewide, which is equal to last year and one percentage point behind the five-year average. Soybean conditions rated 2% very poor, 6% poor, 23% fair, 51% good, and 18% excellent. Besides the severe weather, the warm humid days provided ideal growing conditions, especially since soils contain ample moisture.
