2017 Corn Harvest Progress

Posted: 28 Sep 2017 05:31 AM

The corn harvest has yet to get underway this fall for Iowa. The featured chart displays USDA NASS estimates of corn harvest progress for the state. The latest number for Iowa is 3% harvested and the three percent value each previous year is denoted by an X. This year's progress is about on par with previous years, except 2012 of course. Recall that 2012 was a drought with epic warmth, so the crops reached maturity extremely early. The harvest of 2009 really sticks out as well with the harvest lasting well into December.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
