Minnesota and Iowa Field Notes

Key Issues:Production

“Our corn crop is going well so far. We do need sun and heat. It’s been overcast past two weeks with plenty of rain. The crop has emerged, but we are waiting on the sun and temperatures in the 70s so that it can really take off. Right now, the forecasters are talking sun tomorrow with the heat coming next week.”

- Bryan Biegler, Minnesota farmer

 

“Today, we’re clearing out the bins and delivering last year’s corn. The new crop is going better than I thought that it would. I was concerned when it was hit with frost, but the warmer, humid weather brought it back quickly.”

- April Hemmes, Iowa farmer
