Sorting through the information flood for usable knowledge for our farm
John, I think a comparison of bean heights would be even more problematic for yields this year. In my little area of Western Indiana less than half the beans are over three inches tall. Even a normal season is not going to cut it. I also think that if the wheat harvest is delayed until after the tenth of July, I think you will see few double-crop beans north of I-70, even with the high prices.
rhoads:Your beans have height?Seriously, I agree but was too lazy to track anything down. I was just struck by this chart.
I traveled from New York to Missouri, and back, in mid June. I was surprised to find that New York corn was considerably taller than the corn I saw along I70 in Indiana and Illinois.
West central Illinois here. It is COOL on the 4th of July. This has been the strangest year. We got 2.3" wed. night. Lots of wheat to cut and lots of beans they may not get in. Markets dont realize the severity of the problem.
