As of now, it looks like corn planting in some parts of Iowa could get started later than normal due to March showers and cool temperatures this first week of April. The current 6- to 10-day National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast calls for cooler than normal temperatures coupled with less than normal precipitation. What factors are important to consider regarding planting date of corn once field work is possible?
