The favorable weather we are having is really making the crop progress quite nicely. Some farmers are saying there could be tassels showing by the Fourth of July! Corn progress is well ahead of the five-year average with 95% emerged. Corn is an average height of 7 inches, which is 4 inches taller than the five-year average. Soybean planting is nearly complete as rain delayed planting in some areas. This year’s soybean crop is also ahead of the five-year average with 65% emerged. Weeds are attacking some fields that I’ve walked. Because weeds take moisture and fertility from soil, timely spraying saves you yield and money.
