June one is almost here and rain and mud til after that will most surely = a above chance of a short bean harvest.
As a side note that is almost my exact % I am planted on the bean side.
can you confirm what i'm starting to hear about the newly emerged corn in waterlogged areas being yellow and tough? @ the end of the season Corn might be the bigger story?
what does "tough" mean to you?----are they dying, going temporarily dormant?
Vrbuck mad a great statement on one of the other threads about it also concerning time getting short. Above I-70 they are getting late enough that enough heat units to make a crop before frost will have to be very hot or many hot days crammed together which is not good for polination. A cool august is good for yield but it won't finish before frost damage.
Here we have a longer growing season so we will finish but we are way behind. The feeders are not going to get the august corn they expect. Unless we keep having 4 days of high winds every week without rain.
