Rain may help Iowa soybeans, but too late for corn

Aug. 30, 2012 | 0 comments

Iowa farmers are hopeful last week's rain will help the soybean crop as the corn harvest gets under way during the nation's worst dry spell in a generation.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers are still chopping corn for silage and starting to harvest corn for grain and seed.

Fifty-three percent of the corn crop is in poor to very poor condition.

The USDA says farmers are hoping soybean plants will produce more pods because of the rain, which averaged 1.29 inches last week. It was the wettest week in 10 weeks.

Nineteen percent of the soybean crop is turning color, and some leaves are dropping.

Soybeans are rated 36 percent poor or very poor, 39 percent in fair condition and 25 percent in good or excellent shape.
