This season's soil moisture status varies a great deal from one area to another, but is generally wet across much of the state. Most areas have received at least some rainfall and the wet soil has kept producers out of fields in the southeastern and south central parts of the state. For current weather reports in your area, go to the Iowa State University Extension website. The recent rainfall throughout the state has had a mixed impact on soil moisture.
