vhi maps took a major dump

[ Edited ]

looking at the maps the entire western belt took a turn for the worst.  Most of illinois is sucking right now, except for the northern part of illinois around chicago.  The best is indiana and ohio, and they are just average.  For the maps to read exceptional over indiana and ohio they should  be blue-like iowa and minnesota last year.  The crop growing areas of the Dakota are in the same boalt as Minnesota and Nebraska is falling off a cliff.  We should be into 11 bill if these maps are correct.http://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/smcd/emb/vci/VH/vh_browse.php

Re: vhi maps took a major dump

Just watch the ratings the next few weeks we are going to fall down quick and this heat dome looks like it may stick around most of august. Corn is starting to roll an I got an inch of rain last week. Does not look like I will be getting any rain in the next 14 days and temps all in the mid 90's. Basically it looked like 200 bushel corn an it is going to get reduced to less then 150 the next 2 weeks.

I believe Ohio's corn showed a decrease over last week's ratings already.   The soybeans in Ohio are going downhill fast also with too much rain.     If Ohio is the garden spot, the boys in Chicago will soon be buying.

Sounds like poor root development complicated by either to wet or mudded in acres. Not surprising when you consider the kind of spring we had.

What - me worry?!?!  If anybody needs rain this year all you have to do is rent a sign that says "Albert Lea - Pop. 18016" on it.

 

No matter which direction the storms come from that sign will get rained on!!

Re: vhi maps took a major dump

I hear you....I went to pick up some seed pallets at Albert Lea this spring and it rained almost all the while I was there. Not showers...heavy pouring rain. No wonder you have those lakes.

Compare the VHI of week 27 of 2013, to week 24 of of 2011.  They look identical.  Looks to me like we are just 3 weeks behind.

Re: vhi maps took a major dump

if it yields like 2011 the national yield would be 10-13 percent below trend, or 144 to 148 national yield.  In reality the national yield would be below this since we have more pp and late planting this year.  spring was far worse this year.
