7 day total precip forecast, implications

If this precipitation forecast (shown below)  comes to be, I don't know how many of you guys have ever tried to grow corn under continuous water-logged conditions but if this keeps up the national yield isn't going to be any 166. Too much rain can be just as bad as too little.

And I was hoping to get a few acres of late planted beans in just to control the weeks and have something to harvest this fall.

I'm actually more pessimistic now than a couple of weeks ago.  And I'm normally a pretty optimistic person.

This crop has more shoes to drop than what`s in Imelda Marcos` closet.

Too little rain will scare you.......Too much rain will kill you.

Here in Ohio, the latter is coming to fruition.

They are predicting up to 5 inches of rain for this weekend in places in Ohio.

I hear you guys, best of luck, it’s ugly all over.  Markets starting to react in favor for a bit nice to see.  Better late than never same for the effort. Keep at it.
