Are we in for a weedy crop?

My weed program isn't working as well as I expect and like.  Rain got some of the residual maybe and growing conditions are good for the weeds.  Corn is just about too high to get through the second time.  I didn't do as good a job as I'd like on a burn down and first pass.


Soybeans at least I can get through and they need it, both broad leaves and grass.


The rain has made this a struggle, getting spraying done and fertilizer on.  There are a lot of wet spots in the field.  Corn is quite variable, with some already waist high and some only about a foot and short nitrogen (which I put on today).


I'm thinking that even if I have a good crop, the bloom is already off the rose.
