Harvest Updates from Iowa Corn Leaders – Nov. 11, 2011
Rain and snow fell this week in many parts of the state. The precipitation halted fieldwork and applications of fall fertilizers for many farmers.
Mark Recker of Arlington says his area received a couple inches of snow which stopped farmers from continuing their fall tillage work. Lots of area farmers applied anhydrous last week. Recker is done with his tillage work. He does not apply anhydrous in the fall but rather does spring applications of liquid fertilizer. There is still about five percent of corn yet to be harvested in his area.
Deb Keller of Clarion says harvest is complete in her area and tillage is wrapping up as well. Many farmers are busy doing clean-up work around their farms.
