WATERLOO (KWWL) - Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northy says we are having one of the most challenging harvests in decades. That's in his weekly crop report released Monday.

There were only two days suitable for fieldwork last week. Ten percent of corn has been harvested for grain. Soybeans harvested reached 37%, 41% behind last year.
