From green to gold
Harvest season inching closer in northwest Iowa
September 15, 2022
The changing aesthetic on rolling hills throughout northwest Iowa can only mean one thing – harvest season is just around the corner.
Soybean fields have been changing rapidly from green to gold over the past week. Alic Mohni, an agronomist with Growmark FS in Hartley, said local farmers are expecting varied yields thanks to extremely spotty rain totals throughout the region during the growing season.
"We're going to get a little bit of everything," he said. "North of Hartley, things look pretty good. South closer to Royal, they're three or four inches behind on rainfall in some spots."
