CONTINUING COVERAGE: FLOODS OF 2016

Half Of Iowa Crops Mature

 

Statewide, there were only three days good for fieldwork this last week but farmers in east central and southeast Iowa had more than five days.

You can see harvest happening sporadically across the state, but for the most part, farmers are waiting for dry weather to clear up the crops.
According to the Iowa Crop Progress report, only about half of corn is mature, three days ahead of last year. Although central, east central, and southeast crops are in the mid 60%. Corn conditions are still 83% good or excellent.
Beans are also a little ahead, 82% of beans are turning color, two days ahead of last year. While 46% of beans are dropping leaves, four days ahead of last year. Central Iowa is at 72% dropping leaves. Soybean conditions are down a bit at 81% good to excellent.
