Iowa State addresses questions about late harvest, low prices

US drought monitor map

The ISU Extension and Outreach crops team responded to producer questions related to the late spring, dry summer and slow crop development during meetings in north central Iowa in mid September.

The specialists discussed crop maturity, crop drying, potential effects of an early frost and pre-harvest preparations. They also examined 2013 crop quality, including moisture and test weight variability, potential diseases, and the best practices for handling and storing the crop. Video recordings of their presentations are available online.
