As I drove through the country on the 4th of July, I noticed a lot of corn that was waist-high and the soil looked very moist. I was reminded that last year, crops were already being picked because of the drought. Many forecasts for 2013 was for the drought-like conditions to continue. This hasn’t been the case in a lot of areas, in fact some areas are still very wet. Here is a news story from Wisconsin regarding crops and again, it appears this years crop is looking good at the moment.
