Iowa State Ag Secretary Concerned With State’s Crop Conditions

Iowa crop continue to lag behind normal for maturity.  USDA’s crop progress report showed corn at only 9-percent dough verses the 39-percent five year average.  Iowa Ag Secretary Bill Northey says that is concerning as well as the areas of the state that have moved back into drought status as of the latest Drought Monitor.

Soybeans are even further behind with 53-percent setting pods verses the average of 80-percent.  Northey says the beans are also visibly short.

Northey says there are also several hundred thousand acres of prevent plant in the state which will pull overall yields down.
