Drought - Wheat - C/B
Comparing 2 yrs ago - to last week has some relevance as per maps below. Also noteworthy - notice on last weeks map the OUTLINED BIG L areas - denoting GReater than 6 months forecast.
Also, the southern wheat is a coming out of dormancy in -- not-so-stellar --shape...still much ??? pondering material to accompany price charts as the earth experiences (next 4 weeks) as it's greatest day-length increases/day - of the year.

........and, as I remember it - some Corn planting had begun in what would be the next 2 calendar weeks as far North as NE, IA & IL, in 2012.
soooooo, after last yr (comparing 2012-13 dates, conditions, etc.), does planting date ACTUALLY matter very much -- ON BALANCE?
