Guys, Soys are funny. You can still get bIg yields when planted late.

Re: Doom and Gloom OR Hope ?

  Us in NW Ohio have a reversal from last year.  2102 we couldn't buy rain. This year I have had 3.5" in last 10 days which was welcome as things were just starting to dry out.  Planting was great as we had 3 weeks of mostly dry weather in early May.  I finished May 21.  As of now we have the potential for a great crop.  Beans and corn are 2 weeks further along than usual.  Beans have the rows covered in 15" rows and most corn is waist to chest high.  The sour note is rain is delaying wheat harvest and we are nearing the time of hoping for no more rain for a while as the ground is saturated now but rain is in the forecast as possible almost every day for the next week.  I contracted 30% of expected yield as I expect prices drifting lower towards harvest.

Joe and others,  I wouldn't turn down a 50 bpa yield but the farm has been consdistently above the average county yield.
