Northery comments on Iowa crops and weather report
DES MOINES — Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through October.
“The dry weather remains a concern as 65 percent of the topsoil and 59 percent of subsoil moisture is short or very short,” Northey said.
“While the cool dry weather was ideal for the state fair, crops need additional precipitation and warm weather as development remains well behind the five-year average.”
