Soybean College Crop Comments Round Up

August 1, 2011 01:28 PM

Ira Mosely Brookfield, Mo. - My beans are waist high and my corn is about two weeks from dent.

Chad Ramseyer Poneto, Ind. - We had a bad dry spell but we got a rain and it really shaped up. The corn got planted late, but we are starting to tassle now.

Jon Gingerich Parnel, Iowa. - Beens look good, my corn looks pretty good too but I'm not sure about polination. Most of the state pollinated during the heat. There are too many days until harvest to know for sure.

Brad Koen Dewitt, Ark. - It's really dry, but we are all irrigated so its really the heat that bothers us. Our crops look pretty good, but we've got really heavy bowl weavel pressure.

Bobbi Gavnit Eaton Rapids, Mich. - Got 6 1/2 inches of rain last week, so we look good now but I don't want to get excited.

Ron Hesla Wakonda, S.D. - Our corn crop is below average. We are 40% drowned out.

Cesar Pacheco Mexico - We just finished our first crop soybean harvest and we planted the fall crop July 31.

William Tack New York - We had a late start, but we got them in the ground the end of May. My corn looks decent but my beans look tremendous.
