Scouts started into Nebraska Monday afternoon, and after a mixed review in South Dakota, were pleased to see stronger corn measurements. Some of the fields even got people thinking about record yields.
Seeing some nice crops in Nebraska today. Record? #pftour16— Kurt Line (@kurt5line) August 22, 2016
But other scouts weren't so sure.
With every ear, context is important.
And even more important is what's in store for the rest of the season.
But even as some people are hard at work measuring ears, others would rather be in the cheap seats.
Fires up twitter....sees #pftour16 is going strong. Grabbing the fireball and settling in for the week. Good luck traders.— FF (@FatF1nger) August 22, 2016
