A climate expert says Mother Nature has provided favorable harvest conditions for Corn Belt farmers.
Justin Glisan is the state climatologist for Iowa. “It’s a rapid harvest,” he said. “We saw similar conditions last year given how dry things were. It’s almost a mirror image of where we were last season with very dry conditions across much of the Corn Belt.”
But he tells Brownfield the dry conditions are having an impact on subsoils for the 2023 growing season.
