Abstract

After my first spring in Iowa, I wonder whether there are more cloudy days in Iowa than in Denmark! It definitely has not been an easy spring, and it’s only the third week of May. Based on USDA’s Crop and Weather report, we had a little more than half a day suitable for fieldwork from May 4 to May 11, compared with 4 days last year. However, with 5 days of reasonably warm weather (without any rain), there is a chance to get back into the field. Before this weekend (May 17 to 18), the USDA predicted that corn planting was 4 days behind normal with approximately 64 percent of the corn planted across the state, compared with 81 percent last year.
