NW Iowa
200 bu in my area is a crop failure. Our corn is shoulder to head high, V10-V14. We have gotten rain in the past, top 4" is dry, but can make a ball of dirt under that. We hold 2" of rain per ft down to 6- 8 ft on all the good ground. APH in this area is 225 COC and 225 and up for COB

What is really interesting around MAY 25th the sun "woke up" It has been "sleeping for around 1000 days. Sun spots started appearing and had some mass corneal ejections.
I haven't seen it in the upper 80's to mid 90's from May 28th through July 4th for along time.
We are maxing our heat units everyday. We will be tasseling in the 2 week period after the 4th of July, if it stays above 70 at night the plant won't slow for grain fill. It takes over 105 before you even need to worry about pollen, and if its 75% humidity even less.
We still have 2 months of weather before its in the bag. If the sun stays active, we could see the drought monitor move up, but will take some major doing to convince the board.
Crop insurance is tool to use, but few use it as such. With this spring's 3.88 there was and is money to be made.
2021 in my opinion will be tough unless we have a major event, especially if we have a low guarantee for crop ins.
