Farmers are still dealing with challenging field conditions with snowfall across the state this last week. The Iowa Crop Progress report says that left only about four and a half days good for farm work.
Forty-three percent of the corn crop is now harvested for grain, eight days behind last year and 11 days behind the five-year average. Producers in the north-central district of Iowa were able to harvest more than a quarter of their crop. But moisture levels across the state are staying around 21 percent.
Eighty percent of the soybean crop is now harvested, three days behind last year and a week behind the average.
