Iowa was very fortunate to receive two weeks of warmer than normal weather, and more importantly lower than expected humidity in the air. This has allowed soybean harvest to be nearly completed, and rapid progress to be made on corn harvest, with moistures now in the low 20s and upper teens. The eastern and far northern Corn Belt still have much wetter corn in the field. New problems have arisen, and efforts now turn to conditioning grain for storage.
