DES MOINES, IA (AP) - Iowa farmers will be able to carry heavier loads of corn, soybeans and other items for the next two months.
Gov. Terry Branstad signed a proclamation Friday allowing the heavier loads, a move Iowa governors usually take in the fall.
The proclamation allows people to haul loads of soybeans, corn, hay, straw, silage and stover up to 90,000 pounds of gross weight without a permit for 60 days. The temporary allowance doesn't apply to interstate highways.
The move is intended to help farmers efficiently move crops after harvest.
