Northwest Iowa — Harvest season will kick into high gear once Iowa gets an extended period of dry weather, and that means large farm machinery will be traveling the state’s roadways.

Iowa State Patrol Trooper Vince Kurtz is calling on motorists to be patient and prepared.

Kurtz says farmers can help reduce the chances of a crash by properly marking their machinery.

Farmers working after dark should also have a red light at the rear of the vehicle and flashing amber lights. Trooper Kurtz says he’s been called to three or four crashes involving farm equipment within the last month.
