Iowa farmers took advantage of some dry weather last week to get into teh fields. One week ago the weekly state crop report showed just 14-percent of the Iowa corn crop has been planted. That changed dramatically this past week as the report says through Sunday 66-percent of teh intended acreage is planted. That’s slightly ahead of the average of 63-percent for this time last year. Soybean planting is running slightly behind. Just five percent of the beans are in the ground compared with 13-percent last year and an average of 11-percent for this time of year.
