With all the doom and gloom, this crop is a failure, it is going to freeze the end of august, and the guys up nort will all see their corn die on Sept 18th and it will be nothing but barrne stalk...... thought I would post some pictures I took of some of my corn I took today. This a 86 day corn planted on 6/14...... 16 around and I counted 30 long (didn't count all the way to end) and final stand of 32,700...

Your corn looks like mine did a week ago.
Now its fired from top to bottom Ear husks are white and hanging straight down. It just ran out of water. 10% of my corn was PP. Now no rain for 4 weekdays Hay fields
are brown and full of ragweed only the irrigated fields are still green
I'm Just a few miles north of you, Near Hampton. Glad your corn still has hope. Going to start chopping corn tomorrow to save on hay

Just isn't any thing to brag about nation wide. I saw lots of good looking crops in the last week
in the almost 3000 miles I have driven.
For every good field there seems to be a burned up one to equalize the total potential to a ho-hum average. Oh yea there seems to be a few summerfallowed fields in an are that that isn't quite normal for.
BTW here is a picture of some of my beans taken last night...
Still gaining height... 6 inches since last week. wish they would spend that energy and water growing pods and beans.
Going to be slow going again this year to process all the material through the combine just to find a few beans.
