Back below 50

Posted: 21 Apr 2015 05:42 AM

50 degrees is an important threshold for soil temperatures when it comes to planting corn in Iowa. The featured chart displays the daily four inch depth temperature range from the Ames Ag Farm site. The warm weather last week has given way to much cooler temperatures this week and soil temperatures have dipped back below 50 degrees. The forecast for this week keeps high air temperatures in the 50s with cool overnight lows, so soil temperatures will not warm in this environment.

Good = 10
Bad = 4
Abstain = 2
