'Perfect' crop weather & growing expectations

That's what Ray Grabanski says this week. That these yield expectations keep moving higher as the weather continues to be favorable for both corn and soybean crops. But, there are some issues out there, as we talked about here this morning.


So, what do you think? Is Ray right or wrong? Will these crops keep getting bigger until the combines roll?

Re: 'Perfect' crop weather & growing expectations

Cut first field this last week.  Irrigation water ran out in early July.  Three varieties,  two from  a merchandiser in Nebraska and one dekalb.  104-6 day maturities,  two green snapped 30-40%  Dekalb worst.  One looked good .


Overall 115 b/a 


Wet corn starts next monday.

Sorry to hear that cheapo, we were able to dodge the severe stuff for the most part.
