With the temperatures in the 90s recently, farmers were out in full swing planting their crops. “It was a very good week (last week) of weather for farmers to finish planting, make hay and do needed spraying. The warm sunny weather was also very good for crop conditions with 77 percent of corn and 73 percent of beans rated good or excellent,” said Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey.
