Northey talks crops

DES MOINES — Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey today commented on the weekly Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. 

“The cooler temperatures and rain showers that moved in this weekend were welcome relief after another week of hot and dry weather further stressed corn and soybeans,” Northey said.  “Harvest remains delayed because of the late planting and cooler weather for much of the growing season.”

The weekly report is also available at www.IowaAgriculture.gov or on USDA’s site at www.nass.usda.gov/ia.
