Corn Planting Finally Underway in Iowa

  • Photo
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Corn planting has finally gotten under way in Iowa, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture figures.

As of May 12th, an estimated 15 percent of Iowa's 2013 corn crop was planted, compared to 86 percent planted at this time last year and to the five-year average of 79 percent.

Brian Wolf with Sunny Side Stock Farm north of Bankston tells the Telegraph Herald of Dubuque that his tractors have been pulling double-duty in an effort to catch up on planting this year.

Despite the late start, Wolf says soil conditions have been perfect in recent days, and predicts a bumper crop this year.

Brandon Simon, who farms south of Farley, agreed that a late start "does not always mean lower yields."
