6/10/13 -- McLean County, Illinois: Rain has gone around and let us plant the corn and soybeans by May 25th. However many neighbors are finishing soybeans today. Corn spraying of herbicides has concluded and 28% N is being applied to 6 leaf corn. The first 20% of our corn is close to knee high and with excellent stands. North of Route 24 the ponds have been large and will need replanting. Soybeans on our farm have good stands except for errors in equipment performance which is very small in less than .01%. Some leaf wind damage has been noted. There no insect damage or herbicide carry over.
6/10/13 -- Grundy County, Iowa: Soils are saturated (again) after another inch of rain yesterday. Corn is about 3 to 4 inches tall and soybeans have not yet emerged. Warmer temps this week should boost crop development, but corn has a tint of yellow.
