A regional director at the ISU Extension says southeast Iowans can expect to see farmers in the fields as early as this week. Gene Mohling says the forecast that calls for highs in the 70’s is exactly what producers need right now. He says it will give them a chance to do some primary tillage and fertilizer applications. Mohling says the sunshine will also give growers a chance to get any left over corn harvested that they couldn’t in the fall due to the wet weather. He says if the weather allows, planting could start next week.
