DES MOINES, Iowa - Iowa is known more for its corn than for its apples, but around a thousand acres are dedicated to orchards in the state.

Thatís up from 2012 when only seven hundred were harvested, but some of the low crop harvest can be attributed to a hard freeze in 2012. And a couple of days of rain across the midwest is helping grain production, but not the markets.
