Bsaxberg, I've heard the same thing about Iowa. They're not pushing the panic button yet but they are starting to worry about their yields if they can't get things going. Also, we've got farms to the south and southeast of us here in Indiana and they haven't even disked the fields yet.|
Only three percent of Iowa’s corn acreage has been planted, according to the Iowa Crops and Weather Report released Monday by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Services (NASS).
As of Monday, 8 percent of Iowa’s corn acreage had been planted, which compares with 82 percent a year ago and the five-year average of 48 percent, according to the weekly crop report issued by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.
