Piles of corn from the 2014 harvest at Cargill Albion.Corn harvest was estimated at about 70 percent complete in the Boone County area early this week.
The crop has dried down well during the past two weeks, and area farmers were taking advantage of good weather conditions for harvest. Boone County received a sprinkle of rain early Monday, but conditions were dry otherwise.
Corn moisture was testing mostly from 15 to 20 percent.
