Seems like, by reading here and Twitter etc, that crop conditions vary widely across the cornbelt. On-time planting, late planting, replanting, rereplanting, too dry, too wet, on time rains, unwanted deluge, disappointing storm totals.....
Point being it's June and often by now we can start getting a handle on crop potential and the market tails off due to a reduction of the unknown. Is this year different?
Locally, we have decent looking corn but we are dry and have been getting a tenth here and there when we need an inch here and there. Stand issues and uneven emergence has me thinking we definitely need a change in weather patterns to pull aph yields. Beans are all over the place and generally way behind and poor stand. Aph beans appears to be a pipe dream as of today.
What do you think your crop potential is as of today?
