Final estimates in from 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour

The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour unveiled the stresses the corn and soybean crops faced following an excessively wet spring and record slow planting pace this year. Scouts on Crop Tour sampled around 3,000 fields across the Corn Belt in seven of the nation’s most important corn and soybean states.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast | Aug. 13, 2019

Showers and thunderstorms crossing Ohio today. Looks like a fairly significant rain event coming through. I’m putting rainfall totals anywhere from a half to 1.5 inches now and expanding coverage to 85-90% of Ohio. I do think that we all get moisture, it’s just the question do you get half an inch in some of these areas. I do think most of it is done mid- to late-afternoon.
