Strong early start could serve Midwestern farmers well
May 19, 2010
Midwestern farmers got off to a very early start this year, with Iowa corn farmers significantly ahead of last year's planting
, and also far ahead of the 5-year average. Lousy, rainy weather has kept them from getting much done over the last week, but the early start means that there's still some opportunity for replanting if it becomes necessary. Agricultural irrigation is by far the biggest category of water use
in Nebraska. Irrigation is vastly less significant in Iowa, though water for livestock operations
is a major category of Iowa water use.
