Planting done in Iowa

Planting is finally complete after dry weather allowed farmers nearly seven full days of fieldwork.  State Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey says most of the state could now use a good soaking rain as the high temperatures and windy conditions have dried things out.  He says some crops are starting to show stress as a result.  Seventy-seven-percent of the corn and oat crop were rated in good to excellent condition last week and soybean conditions rated 73-percent good to excellent.
