Abstract

As we enter summer, attention has turned to two important topics for Iowa agriculture: current crop conditions and the future farm bill. The latest crop progress reports show that although wetter than normal conditions have held throughout most of the planting season, crop progress has not been severely hampered. Recent legislation before the U.S. Congress provided $79 billion in additional funds for agriculture over the next decade; $5.5 billion of this has been designated for emergency relief for the current crop year.
