Integrated Crop Management News

Publication Date



After receiving more than 5 inches of precipitation last week in central Iowa, many were thinking back to 1993. Last week's rainfall was not like 1993. Fortunately, very few acres were planted last week in central Iowa prior to the rain. About 10 to 15 percent of the corn was planted last Sunday when it started to rain, and the soybean acres planted were not measurable by USDA. Probably it was just soybean research plots that were planted! Many producers may be fortunate that they still have their seed in the bag. Poorly drained fields and fields in river bottoms will stay wet for a few more weeks, and there may even be areas that cannot be planted this year.
