Abstract

The delays in planting led to delays in crop development and conclude with delays in harvesting. As of Nov. 23, 86 percent of Iowa’s corn was harvested, roughly 12 percent behind normal. The harvesting backlog, in combination with higher fertilizer prices, has fall fertilizer application behind as well. Normally, over half of fall fertilizer applications are done by this point in the year. Currently, we are at 32 percent. The delays of the 2008 crop are slowing the prep work for the 2009 crop.
