well I am not kidding to bold of a prediction makes me question who you work for or favor. Seems it could get to wet its a fifty fifty chance either way tell it like it is not what buyers want to hear.No way does anyone know it all like is claimed by traders only hear and see what they want.Farmers only ones deal with reality.

What does this mean for us here in minnesota?

Quite favorable for crops. In the last 3 El Nino summers--2002, 2004 and 2009--Minnesota corn yields and production were both above the previous year. 2002--157 bu/A, 27 bu/A more than 2001 with production at 1.05 Billion bushels versus 806 Million in 2001. 2004--159 bu/A vs 146 in 2003 with production of 1.12 Bil bu vs 971 Million in 2003. 2009--175 bu/A vs 164 in 2008 with production of 1.25 Bil bu vs 1.28 Bil in 2008.

Weather Forecast Favors Upcoming Seeding
Concerns about dry conditions developing across parts of the Canadian Prairies during the spring due to the early departure of snow cover and generally mild, dry conditions have declined during the recent couple of weeks.

My experience in South central Minnesota, is that in fall we have been warmer in September and October with fewer nights below freezing, but we still have a killing frost near the usual date. This hasn't worked out for my trials of 110 day corn and 2.5 maturity soybeans.
Posted by Bill Rynda at 8:44AM CDT 04/25/15
Seems strange. Some dates the record lows or highs are a hundred years ago. Then again, some record dates are somewhat in between or recent. In the 70's, we once had corn freeze of in early June. Other times, it froze in early Sept. and once in August. Like the markets, it seems climate changes on a daily basis to various extremes.
