The August 23 hailstorm across north central Iowa, and to a lesser extent the earlier northeast Iowa storm, caught crops approaching maturity. The sheer size of the north central event, almost 200 miles long and 10 miles wide, assures that damaged grain will reach the market. Fortunately, weather since the storm has been very favorable for hastening maturity and minimizing mold toxin potential.
