Barring an early freeze. Everyone seems to have that as a disclaimer. Well, barring a middle October freeze we will have a big crop. One helluve lot of corn in the blister stage in mn. August 10. Can you tell me Bob how much time that needs? I don't think you care, because that wouldn't fit in your marketing plan. Whatever.
It looks like here in Barren County, Ky. there will be a record corn crop. We've had almost greenhouse conditions pretty much the entire growing season. Soybeans maybe not quite as good but they're coming on.
