Look how great our Iowa farmers are! They may have gotten in the field later than anticipated, but made up for it in record numbers. 61% of the corn crop was put in within six days, thanks to the great weather and the size of equipment our farmers use now. The 61% increase in a single week hasn't been reached since 1992. What an accomplishment! We wish our Iowa farmers continued success during this planting season, and into the summer growing months.
