Snow hampers corn harvest

DES MOINES — Rain and snow continued to keep farmers from finishing up the corn harvest.

The latest USDA report shows 92 percent of the corn has now been harvested. That is six percent more than last week. The report shows the northeast and south-central districts had more than 15 percent of their crop left to be harvested while all others had 10 percent or less remaining.

The harvest is 11 days behind normal and it is the latest corn harvest since 2009.
