CORN | SOYBEANS
The company that is our Web site host had a technical problem. We apologize for any inconvenience from our web site being down.
Soybeans: Excessive Rain Seneca and northern Crawford county reduced growth and damaged areas of some fields. More normal weather now and the beans are returning to a more normal green color and starting to grow.
Corn: Pollination is basically over and ears are starting to fill. Corn growth was not slowed by excessive rain and no flood damage.
The Big news for Corn and Soybeans are the market prices.
World grain production problems in Brazil, and now concerns for the crop here in the US, and very high exports of grain has driven market demand.
