comments on Iowa crops report

DES MOINES — Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented Monday on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through October.

“Harvest is starting to pick up speed with five percent of both the corn and soybean crop now out of the field.  Early reports from farmers show yields vary widely across the state,” Northey said. “It is likely the pace of harvest will continue to increase as the warm dry weather has helped the crop dry down in the field.”
