Wheat, Wet, Planting Progress

I worked in St. Charles County Missouri today.  Wheat is heading and pollinating.  Not looking great any more, but still OK.  Wet parts of fields were not dry as a result of last weekend's rain.  We had to go around a few wet spots but still got everything sampled.  We sampled all corn ground today.  It was V2 to 4 depending on planting date.  It looked good.  Only a few plants were gnarly looking fro the freeze.  No insects.  I would judge corn planting in that area to be about 75% done.  Lots of people are finished, but some of the slow guys have a bit to go.
