Iowa in the Lead

Posted: 14 May 2020 04:37 AM

For Midwestern states, Iowa is in the lead for corn crop planting progress according to the weekly crop progress update made by the USDA on Monday. The featured map presents the statewide estimates along with a departure from the previous ten years. Outside of some recent chilly temperatures, this spring has been near ideal for planting in Iowa. Conditions have been wetter to our southeast, which has slowed progress there. The forecast has our weather turning back to more summer time conditions with chances of needed (imagine saying that a few months back) rain and warmer temperatures.

Good = 15
Bad = 1
