Dry conditions ruled all the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions Monday, except for the Southeast, where showers and thunderstorms were in effect. Notably warmer temperatures prevailed as well. Values ranged from the mid-70s in northern Michigan to northeastern Iowa to the mid-90s in south Texas.
Tuesday will be dry again, other than the Southeast where light rain will occur. This dry trend, along with much warmer temperatures, will produce a stressful set of crop conditions for corn and soybeans.
