Harvest is still a week or two away for a farmer in north central Iowa.
Stu Swanson says his area has been on the dry side this growing season, but some “just in time” rain events have kept the crop moving along.
“Especially rain in August that helped fuel some of the late yield addition hopefully. Corn has stayed a little greener throughout the season, and especially now it’s kind of slowed down the dry down.”
He tells Brownfield there was less moisture to the south and west.
