Farmers in western Iowa are speeding up sowing

Farmers in the western third of Iowa are furthest along in cultivation.

In the northwest corner, Marcus Brownfield’s Brian Tuttle tells that a lot of growers are bagging corn.

“I’m going to finish the beans today and then get back to the corn. But it looks like we’re closing a lot of things here with the seven to ten day forecast.”

He says the ground has solidified again after the weekend’s rains.

“People started rolling yesterday and as I was doing chores today a lot of seed tenders came by. And I can see about ten people (in the field) just from where I am right now.”

Statewide, planting progress in Iowa is about two weeks behind normal, with corn planting at 14 percent and soybean planting at 7 percent. Farmers in western Iowa are speeding up sowing
