Flip a coin. We're still moisture deficient in local area of MO. Decent rains last week mostly ran off. Good snowfall mostly evaporated or ran off. Top of ground is wet -- frost layer kept moisture from going down, but ponds finally caught some water.
Have heard several guys mention that they're upping their crop insurance levels.

The drought is over. Sure there will be places it is too dry, too hot, too cold, too wet, etc. But for the majority it is over. There will still be sub soil moisture problems but timely rains will mitigate this. The good crop areas will out number the poor areas by far.
Look at the good side, in the great areas there won't be any piles of corn on the ground since the augers will be rattling empty long before harvest starts!
