Planting Updates from Iowa Corn Leaders - Wed., May 16, 2012

Posted on May 16, 2012 at 8:54 AM by Iowa Corn

After having a 15-day interruption in planting, Wayne Humphreys of Columbus Junction in Louisa County finished planting soybeans on Monday, May 14. A few farmers in his area are still finishing planting soybeans. Other farmers are moving on to spraying corn. The early-planted soybeans are up already and looking good. He’ll start spraying corn as well soon.

Greg Eibs of Laurel in Marshall County says everyone in his area is finished or almost finished planting soybeans. There is a little bit of seed corn left to plant in his area. He and a few farmers who grow seed corn have been waiting on some hybrids to come from Hawaii. The earlier planted corn is up but he says they could use a little bit of rain.
