Upper Midwest drought zone east of Interstate 35

Large sections of Iowa and Minnesota have been hit hard by drought.

Northern Country Cooperative CEO Jason Schwenneker says the co-op operates mostly east of Interstate 35 from Cedar Rapids to Rochester.

“We’re worried, yes. We’re in a very affected area where our whole trade territory, we’re going to have a lot of ups and downs.”

He tells Brownfield he recently visited with a farmer who harvested corn and saw yields range from 40 bushels an acre to 230 in the same field.
