The area’s wheat crop turned out well, despite widespread drought. Wheat generally was planted early enough to beat the worst of the drought.
But what about corn and soybeans, the region’s two other major crops, which will be harvested this fall?
Well, some smart people in the Upper Midwest tell me they think soybeans will yield fairly well, while corn won’t. Other smart people tell me they think corn (at least some fields of it) will do OK, while soybeans will disappoint.
Drop me a line and share your thoughts.
Everybody agrees on one thing: We won’t know the fate of corn and soybeans for certain until combines hit the fields.
