5-9-18 SNOWFALLS EXPECTED IN IOWA'S 9 USDA DISTRICTS

4-13-18

Greetings, Selected Members of IA Legislature Agriculture Committees and all—

Iowalive’s 2-19-18  website file:///C:/IOWALIVE/2018cornsoybeanforecasts.htm reported expectations for colder than normal Iowa 2018 spring weather, and that it would reduce crop yields. 

The following May 9TH 2018 snowfall expectations for Iowa’s 9 USDA districts are prepared with that in mind, and as with crop yield forecasts will not be updated as time passes.   Farmers can compare them to their usual long range weather forecasting sources.  The National Weather Service makes shorter term forecasts.
