Iowa corn, soybean harvests nearly wrapped up

Iowa’s office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service reports 99% of soybeans and 98% of corn have been harvested with most of what’s remaining for both crops in the southern third of the state.

With most farmers done harvested, the office adds fertilizer application has been a popular activity, along with repairing fences and installing terraces and grassed waterways.

69% of topsoil and 93% of subsoil is short to very short of moisture, so more precipitation ahead of the ground freezing would be welcome for most of the state.

69% of pastures and rangelands are in poor to very poor condition and 42% of the state is short of hay.

Only 19% of Iowa has seen moderate to heavy grain movement from farm to elevator.
