DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa farmers are wrapping up the harvest as field work progresses, but some farmers are delaying applying fertilizer because of the dry weather.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in the weekly crop report on Monday that Iowa finally received some rain last week, easing moisture concerns slightly. Even so, topsoil moisture levels are 68
percent very short or short.
Fall tillage continues, but some farmers are waiting to apply anhydrous due to concerns of the dry conditions preventing sealing and causing nitrogen losses. More corn stalks are being baled this fall because of concerns about hay supplies.
Rain fell across the state last Wednesday and Thursday, ranging from a trace at Sheldon to 2.3 inches at Keokuk. Rain is forecast starting Tuesday, with snow possible in northern Iowa.
