As bad as a frost.

These fields were green 10 days ago. I've never seen crops burn up so fast. Looks like the cool temps earlier were hiding a lot of the drought stress. It's been a difficult year. 14" of snow in May. Wet as he11 till the end of June. Now this............IMG_0015.JPGIMG_0016.JPGIMG_0021.JPGIMG_0019.JPGIMG_0020.JPG

Re: As bad as a frost.

All but the way late stuff in central Iowa looks exactly like your corn picture. Mine included.

 

I saw a few beans like that around Grand Junction, Iowa.  Many will be there next week if we miss the rain this weekend.

60% of the time, it works every time.

Yep, sudden death from a week of 95 degrees and 45 days with no rain.

Re: As bad as a frost.

Wow........the boys in Chicago have some serious rationing to do........But the question is, willl the USDA let them?  They have really painted themselves into a corner.  And it appears that there is now only one way out.  That direction may be straight up.  :smileywink:

I wouildn't count on it.   Only way we go higher is if the pipeline goes empty and someone can't source a supply....until then, the party goes on forever and the USDA funny numbers prevail   End of Story.

 

A_holes are puckering over at RMA.   There will be a need to maintain prices near spring guarantee to avoid huge payouts....so don't look for the cat to be out of the bag until all accounts are settled.  

 

A neighbor is an agent, and unfortunately I have all the adjusters in the area on speed dial from last to clusterforks in 2011 and 2012.   Word on the street is we;re looking at a worse case scanario on beans vs 2012....and there will be plenty of corn claims piling in.
