Kansas and Missouri Field Notes

Key Issues:Production


“The corn is doing very well. It was starting to get pretty dry around here. Then, last weekend, we caught an inch of rain. Last night, we got another ½ inch to an inch depending on the field. The rain gave the corn a shot in the arm, and it looks like it’s doing very well right now.”*

- Lowell Neitzel, Kansas farmer (June 25, 2020)


*The evening after Neitzel spoke with us, a heavy rain totaling 4 1/2 inches fell on his farm. The photo shows the impact on a replanted cornfield.



“Our corn crop looks great. It has grown a foot or so since last week. It is that beautiful deep, dark green with the leaves as large as my hand. You can’t even see the rows because it is so full.”


- Addie Yoder, Missouri farmer (June 25, 2020)
