Bad year for lodging?

Story from University of Illinois  talks about standability being a big issue corn this year (full story). U of I's Emerson Nafziger believes this could be "one of the worst years for lodging seen recently." Stressed  corn isn't producing enough lignin for stalk strength. Soybeans could be subject to lodging this year, too, he says.


Anybody seeing similar signs in their neighborhood?
