Attention Turns to Harvest
Our season of extremes continue. This past week we experienced extreme temperature differences, as temperatures at one point as low as 33 degrees but daytime highs reached 90 degrees in Northwest Iowa. This past weekend also brought another rain event – or two – to the area. Top soil moisture is 80% adequate, and subsoil moisture is 79% adequate.
Although last week’s early frost nipped immature crops, 76% of Iowa’s corn and 74% of our state’s soybean crop are in good to excellent condition. Click here to see how crops are faring by region across Latham’s six-state marketing footprint.
