Harvest starting slowly
Saturated corn and soybean fields are creating havoc for the fall harvest.
“In 26 years of planting and harvesting, this year has been one of the most challenging years I’ve had in agriculture, said Stu Swanson, District 2 Iowa Corngrowers Association director. “There has been 100 percent more rain than in a normal year. It is mind blowing that we would be this wet.”
Kossuth County Farm Bureau President Jeff Schutjer has seen harvest get off to a slow start before. “We can get a lot done in a short period of time if the weather cooperates.”
