The weather forecast and hope for rain for the last month has mostly been a big tease. The showers continue to make their way very close to us, then break apart. Our soybeans continue to have cupped leaves and slow growth, and our corn is still burning up every day. If you were to compare this year's soybean crop to last year, our soybeans are considerably shorter. Early in the growing season, our corn was set up to have another great year and looked comparable to the last several years. However, it won't come close.
