Corn couldn’t shake off the rains moving through the Midwest to kick the week off. Iowa got rains yesterday, up to 5 or 6 inches in some spots and they saw more this morning. I spent the weekend in Iowa, frankly the corn is more yellow than it is any shade of green, at least it was in the areas I was in. The beans look phenomenal but if you walk out in them there isn’t much there to talk about, actually it’s pretty disheartening what there is to talk about. Pro Farmer started their tour today, historically they are a couple bushel lower than the USDA so we’ll see how that treats us. The crop condition report will be out this afternoon usually we would see conditions start to lower as the crop finishes but the weather has things a bit askew so we’ll see on that also.
