According to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Iowa Crop Progress and Condition Report, only a handful of corn remains in the ground statewide. For the week ending Sunday, Nov. 20, producers had 4.8 days suitable for fieldwork with activities focused on applying anhydrous, manure, and lime. The corn harvest climbed to 97 percent complete from 95 percent last week, which indicates the 2022 harvest is functionally complete. The soybean harvest wrapped up close to two weeks ago. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig says, “Despite a year that included significant weather challenges, persistent inflation, and highly pathogenic avian influenza, we approach Thanksgiving and the conclusion of harvest with a deep sense of gratitude. We are thankful for the hardworking and resilient farm families who continue to sustainably produce crops and livestock that feed and fuel consumers here and around the world.” The entire USDA Iowa Crop Progress and Condition Report is available online at www.nass.usda.gov.
