Early corn looks ok even with some hail. Early beans are great if pods will fill. DC beans are a waste of money. Central Va

northwest tennessee has lost at least 75% of our corn yield as of july 8. Rain has helped the corn that has ears but 109 degree temperatures caused lots of stalks without ears. The beans have been helped for the time being. We also have bought back what contracts the company would allow.

corn is a disaster, totally ran out of water, early planted pollinated, but ears will not fill and some ears will not fill at all. Replant corn can't even tassel, 7' tall and started tasseling a week ago and then shut down. Reminds me of 1980 or worse

tempertures are hurting the corn.It is very dry and the ear size is going to be small. The beans have have had a bad year so far.

the early planted beans are much better than the later planted.

We're in Eastern Arizona at 6400 feet elevation. We haven't had rain for several months, and we're very vulnerable to catastrophic wildfire right now. Even though we suffer these very dry conditions, weeds and insects are a major problem for us. It's a huge challenge to grow anything here this year.

The only harvest with any certain grain is wheat and that was hurt by dry weather. Corn and soybeans will not produce grain without a significant period of rains within 30 days. Have already bought back all forward contracted bushels on the Board. Crop Ins. with the fall harvest price option will pay most of the bills.

If you planted to april 27th your good after that date lots of issues. Hard rains compacted and crusted soils leading to emergence issues. stands are less than desireable, however just above being worthy of replant. now insects are hitting hard cutworm,armyworm and stalk borer and the fields are clean of weeds. it is one goofy year that is not off to an excellent start

Our farms are in northwest Iowa. Sioux County was very dry up until mid-May. Then a series of rains came through, totaling over 6" for the month. Corn and soybeans are off to a wonderful start with ample moisture at this time.

Earliest planted soybeans are reaching V4-5. Drought conditions are still hampering growth, as well as weed control.
