    2013 crop concerns continue 62

    As we approach the end of the 2013 growing season, there are remaining concerns with this year’s corn and soybean crop across most of the Upper Midwest. Below-normal temperatures and accumulation of growing degree units (GDUs) throughout late July and early August, along with later-than-normal spring planting, has left some of the corn and soybean crop behind normal development. Continued dry weather, associated with the recent high temperatures, is also a major concern in many portions of southern and central Minnesota, as recent rainfalls have been quite variable....More

    Challenges Remain for 2013 Corn, Soybean Crops 3

    Crop conditions across the Midwest are quite variable in late July, depending on planting date, as well as impacts from heavy rainfalls in June and the recent dry weather conditions in late July. Overall, across the southwestern and the western portions of south-central Minnesota, a large percentage of corn and soybeans are in fair to good condition; however, excessive rainfall, along with very dry weather recently, in some locations could reduce 2013 yield potential.
