    Congrats! I have been in the"void" in west central Iowa. 2 miles north and south good rain. Thinking about setting up some sprinklers. On a good note, bumper crop of all the wild edibles! Plums acorns berries cherries.

    Has it affected corn and bean yields?

    All around it it's been a pretty good year in my area. Corn and beans will be fine, it is just my August planted food plots that won't. Oh well , the deer never seem to like brassicas at my place anyway haha. They love the winter Rye radishes and peas though.

    The crops look great in Western IA, I think they have had more rain overall, in MN my area is fantastic, they are looking at 200 bushel corn easy!

    The beans in most of the state are going to be down on average. Most of the later planted beans are in trouble as far as yields go. Corn will be spotty as well...The lack of rain will affect test weight and w will see what the next 45 days to the beans as far as how much the pods will fill or not. Of course i am speaking for farm production type crops. Deer plots are fine with 120 bu corn and 25 bu beans so they should ok for that. On a side note i have 2 brassica plots in two totally differnt areas and since planting on the 27th one has caught 3.2" and the other 1.1"...so they should be off to a good start

    Well, I got back out to the plots this weekend. I planted last saturday and got 4-5 inches of rain in the next 2 days.....Feeling good about what I saw. Both the soybeans and the radishes are about 3 inches up!!!
