Prime planting window opens in Iowa
Iowa’s state climatologist says farmers can anticipate summer-like circumstances this week. Dr. Justin Glisan tells Brownfield, “It appears like a tropical warmth wave to me.”
Glisan says a chief window for planting has opened with temperatures forecast to be within the 80s and 90s. “These hotter temperatures may even assist dry out topsoil profile so we don’t get muddy, compact, or any issues with the planters on the market,” he mentioned.
However, he says that is the primary massive warmth wave of the season and farmers must be cautious. “We’d have some livestock stress points given the potential for 90 levels and better relative humidity,” Glisan mentioned. “However general, that is what now we have been ready for.”
Glisan says there are a couple of possibilities of scattered rain showers.
