Comments on Weather and Crop Report
The Illinois Weather and crop report is still showing 81% of corn in the good to excellent range. It seems the crop reporters are very optimistic. I am surprised soybeans lag at 77%. Soybeans look more likely to reach yield potential than corn. With moisture conditions improved in recent weeks, soybeans should be great. Some of the corn was stressed negatively by the dry weather in the western half of the state.
