Heat Is Double Edged Sword

The heat is on across Iowa, and while days where the temperature tops the 90-degree mark won’t help some crops, it’s not a bad thing for all corn and soybeans. Iowa State University Agronomist, Paul Kassel of Spencer, calls the heat wave a double-edged sword.

Kassel says there were also many farmers who couldn’t get their soybeans in the ground right away due to the wet spring.

If the heat spurs the growth of those beans, he says it can help offset some of the impact of the late planting.
