Ohio, Minnesota and Kansas Field Notes

Key Issues:Production

“We are glad to know that rain is approaching, and I’m happy for how much we’ve recently. Until last week, we had only had 6/10 of an inch of rain in July. Then, over three days, we got an additional 1 and 8/10 inches. With all of our corn in pollination at some stage, the moisture and slightly less extreme temperatures will help.”

– Patty Mann,  Ohio farmer

 

“We have been receiving some nice rain each week. The corn is looking good. Fully tasseled and looks like the weather is going to cooperate for pollination. Curious to get out and do some yield checks once pollination is done. If we get one more rain in August, we should have a real good corn crop.”

– Bryan Biegler, Minnesota farmer

 

“I would say that our crop would be rated good to excellent. The early planting almost past milk stage. Hopefully, we will be harvesting by mid-September.”

– Lowell Neitzel,  Kansas farmer
