Agronomist Says Northwest Iowa Growing Season Saw Ups and Downs

Final numbers are coming in for the 2023 harvest in northwest Iowa.

Iowa State University Extension Crop Agronomist Leah Ten Napel says there were a lot of ups and downs during the season…

Ten Napel says the growing season didn’t start so hot…

Ten Napel says most of the region received just enough rain to sustain crops through the season. She says samples from the first of November show significantly more moisture in the soil profile this fall than last fall. She says they will take readings again in April and that will tell them how much there is to begin the 2024 crop year.
