The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says 88 percent of soybean acres have been harvested in Iowa. That's 6 ticks behind the 5-year average.

Some farmers in Eastern Iowa have concerns about damage after a deluge of rain pelted the crop during October harvest.

Betsy Jibben travels to Washington, Iowa and talks with farmer Mike Berdo. She also talks with Gretchen Nollman, a grain merchandising manager for Agri-Way Partners about the condition of the soybean crop in Eastern Iowa.
