Not much progress with Iowa’s harvest

DES MOINES — The weather was drier — but the latest U-S-D-A crop report doesn’t show a lot of progress with the harvest.

The report says field conditions remained wet and that limited farmers to around three working days last week.

Seven percent of the corn crop has been harvested — compared to three percent the week before. It’s still two weeks behind the average harvest. 

The soybean harvest advanced a little faster — with 17 percent now harvested — compared to five percent last week. That’s still 11 days behind the average.
