Yes - I listen to Mike Mock from Consolidated Grain and Barge as he emails out a Market Update at about 7:15 Central Time each day and he specifically mentioned the Historic 1.99/1 ratio which is of course discouraging bean acreage, but planting corn is almost no longer an option this late. In Northern IL we will have a first frost sometime in late Sept. I am in Jo Daviess near the Wisconsin border (Highest point in IL) and I have seen a frosty morning in the second week in Sept. So many variables again this year. All in, without going to the Riverboat.
