Thank goodness for the rainfall...but will the corn and soys catch up and make a crop?

Our late planted corn and soybeans are still in trouble....

I am not sure our late planted corn is going to amount to anything after that long droughty spell.

 

How are your crops looking?  Average, Better than average or in rough shape...

Rain has been very spotty in our area (between Brantford and Hamilton) with some areas still very dry.  There are some decent looking crops and then a few miles away some dreadful looking ones. Some of the areas on lighter soil that draw into our elevator will be an outright disaster where others with better moisture holding capacity or that caught a thunderstorm may be not that bad.  I doubt we'll get to a trendline yield here overall but with the extreme variability its very tough to forecast. Wheat is down to the last few stragglers with overall yields about average with big advantage to those who used fungicides and higher nitrogen levels.  We had some rust on the wheat that didn't get the heading fungicide, we really noticed the later maturity on the sprayed wheat this year which made for some tough straw for the fellows who were rushing it.

Saw some awesome corn in Cottam trading area today, timely rains, however wet feet on the soys starting to yellow from root rot complex,

We're looking average to slightly better here (Belleville). We've had over 5" of rain now spread over 3-4 good rains in the last 18 days. Got a couple of fields now with water laying. Some places didn't have anything until this past week though.

I walked some fields on our farm in Port Dover yesterday.

It is dry but the crops are hanging in...hope the rain the weather channel is predicting this week comes.

Corn is pollinating and beans flowering...we need some moisture.
