It’s no wonder why report of more disease, mold, and damage is showing up, along with lighter test weights being reported to the west & northwest portion of the corn belt.

Crop Size has ultimately been reduced because of it, but the question remains “what was the crop size”? We may never really get an accurate count considering how late crops will get harvested, without any crop insurance claims relative to yields, and what will the harvested acres be???
