Subject: RE: Rain makes grain

S Illinois
1993: Most extreme example. Record rainfall/flooding all summer long. Cold, cloudy summer also didn’t help.

1983: Was the prototypical extreme wet spring/dry summer. With today’s equipment and agronomic practices don’t think it would be quite as bad.

2010: High rainfall year combined with heat made everything look good but between the wet holes with nitrogen loss and a pushed maturity, the result was a lower national yield.

Most of the other years were more localized and likely cost some bushels on a national scale but less than 5 bushels

2009: This would be the caution year of wetness. It kept raining during the summer however and was cool resulting in high yields.

Edit: Spelling, grammar errors
