Plant 2020 is Underway for Iowa Corn Farmers

April 28, 2020

As of April 26, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Iowa farmers have planted 39 percent of their corn crop for 2020. Statewide, there was great planting progress made last week on Iowa’s expected 14.1 million acres of corn due to 5.3 days suitable for fieldwork.  In contrast, it was mid-June before Iowa farmers had a week with 5.3 days suitable for fieldwork in 2019.  As planting in Iowa is ongoing, Iowa Corn would like to serve as a resource for facts and images for coverage of #Plant20:
