Hart: 2020 one of those "weird years"

November 13, 2020

Dr. Chad HartChad Hart, professor, was interviewed for a Nov. 12 Gazette story, "Demand from overseas helps Iowa farmers after derecho."

“This is one of those weird years,” Hart said. “Usually I tell people hold onto your crops because this is when prices are usually the lowest. In this case, yeah we’re in harvest but there are some good prices out there you can grab.”

It’s also helped Iowa’s farm economy weather the year’s other big uncertainty.

“Right now, agriculture is for the most part back to pre-COVID conditions,” Hart said.
