This is the amount of days we have gone with less than 1" of rain. We have had 4 rain events but they have not totaled up to more than 1". Walked out into some of our dryland corners and corn going downhill, it has been putting up a good fight but think its throwing in the towel. I can take a stalk and bend it in a u shape all the way to the ground let it go and it slowly stands back up. Reminds me of 2012, I could drive the 4 wheeler through the corn and it would not break off just lean over and stand back up. Corners made 0 that year and they actually stayed fairly green also, never did turn brown until harvest.
