Crop Tour Scouts Find Eastern Iowa, Southern Minnesota in Dire Need of Rain to Salvage Yields

An area in Iowa devastated by the derecho last year was where scouts on the 2020 Pro Farmer Crop Tour waded through damaged fields. During the tour, scouts were trying to measure what seemed to be the impossible with tangled corn stalks and down corn. The issue was determining what could be salvaged and what couldn’t.

This year, scouts on the 2021 Pro Farmer Crop Tour saw drought damage instead of derecho devastation in eastern and north-central portions of the state.

“If Brian wants to talk about Iowa being a swing state, that's the sweet spot in Iowa,” Chip Flory said during the third night of Crop Tour, as the teams previewed where their routes would take them to wrap up the tour.

Where scouts were scattered across eastern Iowa on Thursday, they saw moisture was clearly missing and impacting crops.

Maybe Tennessee could ship some of their rain to the west?
