DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa farmers are ahead of schedule.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Iowa has already planted 50 percent of the crop—thanks to last week's dry weather.

The USDA says in Monday's weekly report that five percent of the corn has emerged, which is 10 days ahead of normal.

Farmers have planted three percent of the soybean crop.
