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

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.

some of the yellow in the beans could be sudden death

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

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.  Smiley Wink

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.
