USDA showing farmers got planting despite the weather
(Radio Iowa) - Snow and cold didn't keep all farmers from pulling out the planter last week.
The weekly USDA crop report shows despite the weather delays 20 percent of Iowa’s corn crop has been planted -- that's one day behind the five-year average. Last week's report showed just four percent of the corn in the ground. Some farmers did plant soybeans this past week and six percent of that crop is now planted -- that's three days ahead of normal. There were only scattered reports of beans planted in the previous report.
