The U.S.D.A. crop report released Monday shows most of the beans are in the bin — while 92% of the corn has been gleaned from the fields. The report says the northeast, southwest and south-central sections of Iowa continue to lag behind in the corn harvest — with 15% of the corn still remaining to be harvested in those areas.
The corn harvest that was hampered by weather remains eight days behind the 5-year average. The bean harvest had been very near the end heading into last week — as the report last Monday showed that there were only 3% of the soybeans remaining in the fields. That was 5 weeks behind the 5-year average.
