Iowa corn harvest on track for once despite Southwest Iowa

by Ben Nuelle

Ninety-four percent of Iowa’s corn has been harvested. This is equal to the five year average. Moisture content is still at 16 percent.

“Ideal weather was seen across much of the state last week and as a result good progress was made and harvest is now nearing completion.  Southwest and south central Iowa is the exception where more than 10 percent of corn and beans remain in the field.  Fortunately, weather for the week ahead looks good as well, so hopefully farmers will continue to make progress and finish before winter sets in across the state,” Northey said.

Soybeans are 97 percent harvested.

The USDA Crop Progress report was released Monday.
