Weather And Crop Report
Corn, soybeans and sorghum all seem to have deteriorated this week. I am assuming the crop condition is mostly related to dryness. Some parts of the state have gotten rain, so I expect to see some improvement next week. 55% of the state of Illinois was short or very short on moisture. Illinois's soybeans seem to be in much better condition than corn, which sort of matches up with what I saw in Missouri on Sunday. Air Temperatures were 6 or 7 degrees above average. Not a good combination with the 55% short on moisture.
