Re: Who's getting rain?

Central nebraska, and less than a half inch, since planting, total.

Re: Who's getting rain?

Info from SW Tippecanoe county, Indiana.

About 1.9 March, 1.29 april, 1.5 May, none so far in June. Any corn that has other stress is in bad shape. Good corn curling some in the heat of the afternoon, but still growing. Beans either OK or not there because they did not emerge. Several areas of chemical damage to corn, don't know if sprayers did not get thouroughly cleaned or if someone screwed up with field maps. Some got replanted, other fields left to try to grow-and they are not doing very well.

Seems like rain goes across Illinois, then dries up at state line.

Hope we all get a good rain soon.

Exit 57  I80  Western Ia received .8 last nite and today. Helps a bunch but the corn and beans are the most uneven and in different stages than I remember. Will need to continue to receive rain

Re: Who's getting rain?

Went for a crop walk this evening. I wont go during the day because its to depressing. We got 1.5 inches of rain in May and 2 tenths so far this month. With plenty of 'pineapple' corn, and some soybeans starting to die in the light spots of the fields, things are not good here.... Branch county Michigan.
