No bin buster yields in our part of southern Mi. and northern Ohio.Corn is burnt up and beans are short.We have beans that are dropping leaves and will probably run in two to three weeks.I was in them last night and there is alot of 3 and 4 bean pods with 1 or 2 beans in them. So pod count may not mean much.We have only had 1.3 in of rain since the 25th of June. Even corn that has been irrigated every day since June figures in the 180s by pro farmers equation.Funny how crop tour followed the same path across corn belt as the rains did. The guys in ILL. that paid 15000 an acre for land better hope for more than 250 bu. corn.

I live on the Missouri iowa border. Sudden death is taking over. Where does this come into play?

Yes, SDS is starting to show up Michael and also white mold in areas experiencing heavy rainfall. Both could certainly take a toll on yield and soybean quality. The rain we're experiencing is definitely a concern to bringing this crop--regardless of whether it is big or not.
