Harvest time
Harvest is in full swing in Winneshiek County. Above, corn was being chopped along county road W-42 south of Ossian last Thursday. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented Monday on the Iowa crop progress and condition report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. “Heavy rains across the southeastern two-thirds of Iowa early last week kept farmers out of the fields for several days and as a result we remain well behind the five-year average with only 19 percent of corn and 61 percent of soybeans harvested,” Northey said. “The dry weather the last several days has been very helpful and farmers will be working long hours to get the crop in when conditions allow.” (Decorah Newspapers photo by Jennifer Bissell)
