We have had plenty of rainfall across Iowa since late April. Frequent rainfall has slowed soybean planting for the past 2 weeks. Based on recent reports from Iowa State University field crop specialists, only about 10 percent of soybean are planted, which is much less than what we had in the ground at this time during the last two growing seasons.
