Crops are starting to show signs of stress brought on by the drought. Iowa Sate University Extension field agronomist, Angie Rieck Hinz (REECK Hins) sees it in the corn in her north-central Iowa area.
The bean crops is also impacted.
Hinz says some areas in her region are short four to five inches of soil moisture needed to produce a healthy crop.
Hinz says they need some rain soon to keep the crop conditions from getting worse.
