Road Trip to Corn College

Driving to Corn College, I saw a variety of crop conditions. Some corn looked right on track as tassels popped toward the sky. Other fields had a range between knee high corn and corn tasseling. And still other fields looked overall sluggish at just over knee high.

For soybeans, there was great variety as well. Some baby beans seemed to have emerged only a week or two ago. Other fields had canopies about to close.

And, just across the road even corn at tassel
as far as the eye could see.
