North Central Iowa Crop Tour

I spent yesterday looking at my farmland in Northern Iowa. I have never seen that amount of farms that are unplanted and there is alot of standing water in many of the fields. The corn that did get planted is only 2 inches tall and the stand count isn't even close to a normal 33,500 to 36,500 range.Total corn production in my part of Iowa will be way, way, down from even our drought reduced production in 2012. I would say this year is much worse than even the flood year of 1993.
