Specialist Says Northwest Iowa Crops Withstanding Heat

 

Crops in northwest Iowa are holding up pretty well with the recent heat spell.  Iowa State University Field Agronomist Joel DeJong covers that corner of the state.  He sees only a slight yield impact on soybeans with the recent hot dry weather.

The heat has been perceived as good for the corn and pushing it to maturity.  However, DeJong says it may have a negative impact on yields and test weight.

That is not the case in all of Iowa.  In the west central part of the state farmers are cutting silage already and the soybeans are turning white from the heat.
