ISU Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor, economist Dan Otto, and soybean agronomist Palle Pedersen are guests this week for the crop and weather update. Pedersen expresses disappointment in central and northern Iowa yields, feeling the crop has been influenced by yield robbing diseases and cool July temperatures, but he is impressed by southern Iowa yields. Current weather will help soybean plants have more uniform maturity when harvested.
