Big in ag: Soggy, slow harvest strides
By: Jeff Caldwell
Harvest-delaying rainfall after major strides of progress is one of the big stories in agriculture this week.
Last week, corn and soybean farmers caught up to the normal harvest pace. This week has gutted that progress, with major rainfall moving through the Corn Belt and mid-South at mid-week. The window's opening again this weekend, forecasters say, before another rain delay next week.
