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.

Thank you for this analysis. This is type of info we need to make marketing plans. We have a nice rally.

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.

Higher Temperatures, More Dryness for Canada's Prairies
Even though it is summer, we are seeing a revival of a weather pattern we are quite familiar with from last winter. The result for Western Canada will be more dry weather along with a return of above-normal temperatures.[Read Full Blog Post]

2015 Wet So Far, But Nothing Like 1993
It's been wet in some areas this growing season -- really wet. But weather experts say this year has nothing on the 1993 floods.[Read Full Blog Post]

East Central Missouri is much worse than 1993. It doesn't matter what direction the rain comes from it all hits Montgomery County. We pour 2" to 4" out of our rain gauges about every other day. Farming is over for this Spring. RW

2015 or 1993. Get real. 1993- Harvested 70 bu. wheat June 15. 2015- 80 bu. wheat flat and rotting in field- June 22 2015- 21 inches rain in May, 2015. 2015- 14 inches rain and still raining -June 22, 2015. 2015- No wheat left worth cutting, if we could cut today. 2015 Custom Cutters have all gone north will come back thru on the way to South Texas, in July, maybe Stats NEVER tell the REAL story. Look on Facebook about Red River flooding on Texas/Ok border, if you have any doubts about our rain problems.

Just because the city of Des Moines isn't flooded doesn't mean its nothing like 93.
Posted by Unknown at 2:52PM CDT 06/22/15
Flew to central Indiana yesterday, crops there are exactly like what I saw in '93 - short, yellow and standing in ponds. From the air we could see every tile line as a narrow streak of green, but in-between was yellow. They said NW Indiana was worse. Back in Eastern Iowa I'm now up to 9 inches of rain in the past two weeks - beans are turning yellow.

We who farm in S E Mn are extremely wet, appears this trend will continue through the month of June according to DTN weather models. Do you see this as an El nino affect currently ? You mention El nino will affect us into the fall meaning what wetter than normal or drier . Corn is starting to yellow beans are doing the same. Thanks Tom
Posted by TOM PYFFEROEN at 6:43AM CDT 06/15/15
El Nino in the fall season is an above-normal precip maker--so we could have a wetter harvest season similar to last year.

Also in the southern Plains, Kansas got into the heavy rain ledger. The Kansas state climatology office notes that May, 2015, will go down as the third wettest May since 1895, according to the Kansas Weather Data Library. Statewide average precipitation for May in Kansas was 7.73 inches, which was 188 percent of normal.

Dryness Slows Early Crop Development on Canada's Prairies
Dry weather has been fairly persistent across the Canadian Prairies this spring leading to increased areas of short soil moisture and a slowing of crop establishment and development. Some frost damage to the early-emerged oilseed crop in some areas last week has forced some replanting.[Read Full Blog Post]
