Farmers worked through some snow flurries and cold, wet weather last week to continue the push to close the harvest season.
The U.S.D.A. crop report shows farmers in south-central Iowa still have more than 20 percent of their corn to harvest — but overall 91% of the corn is out of the fields. That is four days ahead of the five-year average.
The report says soybean crop harvest is virtually complete at 97%.
While rain and snow did hinder the harvest a bit — the report says it did help slightly improve soil moisture levels.
