One grain analyst says, "The broad commodities sell-off is the key market factor today.Every so often, the outside markets have a house cleaning day and liquidate excess long held positions. Today saw metals, energies and currencies all fall hard, pulling grains off their two-day weather rally. Note, it's not July yet, when yields are lost to weather problems. So, the recent weather is just a scare of possible trends to come and are easily erased."

Here is another look at that same field the day before from another location. What a difference warm weather, sunshine, 3 oz of 2-4D makes. Makes you think about a "cherry picked" photo?

It just depends on which model you are looking at - to IF the drought started yesterday -- The GFS model = the U.S. -- had the ridge building over the eastern corn belt - really to me - the center was in the middle of WS. --- BTW
The Euro - model has it way to the west -- with the heart in Canada - this would likely be more of a Great plains type deal .
Now the GFS is free !!!! And that's what a lot of the trade uses ( I think ) BUT the Euro is a lot better and more reliable than the GFS .
This may be why the market is down this moning -- more looking at the Euro .
As brother Hoosier--- Time would say -- Time will tell
