Correlation between crop tour and 30 day precip map?

For those of you who are more familiar with the crop tour route, how does the remaining route correlate to the 30 day precip map?  Will they hit the wetter or dryer areas?  Both?

In IND, they hit only the great soils, most of which have had more rain than the other areas.

 

In IA/MN they will hit the dry areas.

 

btw, there are not any wet areas left north of MO/KY/TN.

To see for yourself go to the agweb.com they show you the route on the home page by color shadeing states they go thru. Then hit the weather link and it has a rain accumation for the entire US for a number of different time periods.

85% of MO is going on 10 days w/o rain and only a small portion had over .5" 10 days ago. no rain in the 7-10 day forecast with 90 degrees every day. Only hope is that most of MO was planted 14 days late. Ussually rain is need prior to Aug 25 to really help. This year that date is probably Sept 5 for MO.

If your luck is like mine, it's usually a screwdriver stuck in the front combine tire.
