As September slips away, Iowa farmers are bringing in the corn and bean crops. The weekly report from the State Agriculture Department says the recent rains arrived too late to help the crops finish maturing, but they have helped green up pastures needed for grazing. The corn harvest did get underway, with 10 percent of the crop picked — slightly ahead of last year’s progress of nine percent but slightly behind the five-year average of 14 percent harvested. The report says 20-percent of the soybean acres have been harvested — which is ahead of last year’s progress of 14 percent but right at the five-year average.
