El Nino continues to intensify. Eastern Pacific temperatures logged by my colleague Mike Palmerino came in at 2.7 degrees Celsius above normal for July. Those departures were +2.7C in June. Mike's records go back to 1949. In that time, the only other year that had a July departure warmer than this was the great El Nino of 1997-1998. The departure in July 1997 was +3.3C.

Drove from Michigan to Texas and back on two different routes and seen nothing but very poor corn and beans. There are small areas of good crops in Ark. and east Texas but thats about it. Along 57 in Ill. corn is small and in very bad condition,flooded,stunted corn everywhere you look. If we are to have trend-line yields of 165 bu. there better be alot of 300 bu. corn somewhere. Tenn. and Ky.were not as bad but not great. Ind.is in real trouble from border to border.

Still believing in rain makes grain

In other words, one out of three wet Junes resulted in lower than trend yields. Sounds more significant in those terms.

Seven-day forecast charts Monday June 29 suggest 2-3+ inch totals again in the Ohio Valley-Missouri Bootheel-Tennessee Valley, but lesser amounts elsewhere, tops of 1.5 inches in Iowa/Minnesota/northern and central Illinois.

Had a great start in May with little rain and wishing for a drop of water. Now we need the tap turned off 8 inches in one week is starting to effect crops. Some fields haven't even been planted in southwestern Ontario

Crops look like crap along 57 and 55 in Ill. Knee high yellow corn until you get to Ark. Lots of unplanted acres. I will be waiting to price crops.
