North to Mt. Pleasant Michigan last week. Corn was not impressive. USDA lowered acreage planted estimates, but increased yields to 157 bu per acre. I can't believe it. Yesterday I did som sampling for a special project. Topsoil was kind of dry. Subsoil moisture was still pretty good. Looked at some double row corn in Staunton today. It looks good. It is one of the few fields in this area planted under ideal conditions.
