Iowa farmers wrapping up harvest and fall tillage

Iowa farmers are mostly finished with harvest.

In its latest weekly crop update, the USDA says corn is 95 percent harvested.  That’s eight days ahead of 2021 and nearly two weeks ahead of the five-year average.

Corn moisture is averaging 16 percent.

The most corn left to harvest is in the northeast and south-central parts of the state.

Farmers are also wrapping up fall tillage, applying fertilizer, baling stalks, and hauling and spreading manure.
