Combines Rolling Hard Across the Corn Belt

Combines Rolling Hard Across the Corn Belt
Thanks to dry weather and hard-working farmers, nearly three quarters of the nation's corn crop has been harvested, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported, with a harvest that has caught up and outpaced the five-year average.

"We've had some good weather for harvesting," said NCGA President Martin Barbre. "Even though some areas are still challenged by moisture, we're getting some very optimistic reports about quality and yield. With another two good weeks of harvest weather, the bountiful crop of 2013 will for the most part be in the bin!"

As of Sunday, 73 percent of the crop has been harvested in the 18 states that produce the bulk of the nation's field corn, with some states making great progress in the past week. In Iowa, the state that produces the most corn, a full one-fifth of the corn crop was harvested in the last seven days as the percent harvested jumped from 55 to 75 percent.
