The latest Iowa Crops and Weather report says Iowa’s stormy springtime has farmers behind on their work. It was sunny and warm at the start of last week, and that helped many get their planting done.

But the summary by Iowa Ag Secretary Bill Northey finds corn and oat planting a week behind last year’s progress on this date, and the weekend’s heavy rain already is blamed for eroding cropland and washing out some of the newly-planted seed.

Some fields will have to be replanted after the flooding rains, and some of the farmers are also out surveying livestock buildings torn up by weekend winds.
