Crop news from West Alton today is that most corn is planted, emerged and progressing nicely. Yes we would like it to be further along, but moisture is good to excessive, so if drainage is good, corn is good. Soybeans are just emerging to bifoliate stage. Stands seem fine. There are still soybeans to be planted, and the rivers are high, so wet spots are holding water. I expect some will drain out and get planted, and others will be prevented planting. No diseases or insects to report today.
