Re: Drought Percentile Ranking

Maybe the traders are looking at these too? Just sold a load of oc corn for $8.09 cash local price. +20 basis.  Kind of glad I have that non expert 4 point marketing scheme.

 

Just had my crop insurance agent stop and give me his condolances for this years crop problems. After he was done I showed him moist dirt and 6 to 7 ft suckers in the corn field.

 

He said I was the only one that could do that.

 The map is surprisingly accurate from what I know conditions to be in my area of NWC Ohio.  The Maumee river roughly seperates the OK from the bad.
