Re: Floor Talk July 16

path of rain was farther south than forecast yesterday.....much of IA south of I-80 had 2-4 inches.....there was concern those kind of rains would continue eastward.....when it didn't happen, corn market gave back gains

Re: Floor Talk July 16

I'm right by I 80 that's my point there was No rain in the forecast today whoops 2-4 how does that even happen and then when it doesn't push a rain that wasn't even forecasted the markets take back gains makes absolutely no sense

ECIN,  If it was winter and what precipitation we've had was snow, my crops wouldn't look like crap.  On the other hand, if it was all snow this time of year, my crops would look a bit worse than they do today.   Smiley Wink
