Mother Nature has created several challenges for growers across the Corn Belt this summer.
Central-Nebraska farmer Clay Govier says there have been several high wind events and continued drought. “We’ve run out of new pivots to put up because so many have blown over.”
But, he says, a poor soybean crop could be the larger concern. “Because of the lack of moisture, I don’t think corn herbicide broke down from last year.”
Lance Lillibridge says his Eastern Iowa crops are in mostly good shape.
