#innovationIOWA Northey: Crop harvest mostly done

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said warm weather last week allowed farmers to move into the final weeks of harvest. “The warm weather last week allowed farmers to make good progress, and now 92 percent of soybeans and 73 percent of corn has been harvested,” Northey said in a statement. “Corn and bean harvests are both ahead of last year and the five-year average.” Northey said.  “The warm, windy weather early in the week allowed crops to dry quickly before much of the state got some moisture on Friday that slowed things down.” Read the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s weekly crop report here.
