Northey: wet weather could slow harvest
DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather weekly report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service.
“It was a busy week in farm fields across the state as 20 percent of the corn crop and 17 percent of soybeans were harvested,” Northey said. “Farmers worked long hours to make as much progress as possible since wet weather is forecast for the week ahead that could again slow harvest.”
The weekly report is also available on the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s website at www.IowaAgriculture.gov or on USDA’s site at www.nass.usda.gov/ia. The report summary follows here:
