Clarke McGrath, extension field agronomist, says severe soil erosion is a concern across parts Iowa this spring, especially in southwest Iowa. During this week's Crop Minute, he talks about the effect of heavy rain falls and greater than normal spring tillage in that part of the state.
The Crop Minute will be a regular feature of Integrated Crop Management News through the growing season. Each week a member of the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach crops team will cover a current topic of interest.
