Comments on Weather and Crop Report
While I have not been everywhere, I have traveled hundreds of miles in the past week in Illinois, Iowa and a small part of Missouri. The Illinois weather and crop report is consistent with what I have seen. 59 % of Corn is listed as good to excellent. May be a a bit generous, but it is close. 67 % of soybeans are good to excellent. I am not sure it should be that high, but soybeans are better than corn. 19% are still reporting short on moisture. That seems about right.
