ABNORMALLY DRY WEATHER SETTLING IN OVER EASTERN CORN BELT
Agri-Pulse reports:

A large area of abnormally dry weather could threaten early planted crops in the eastern Corn Belt as the growing season moves on. USDA Meteorologist Brad Rippey tells Agri-Pulse that "abnormal dryness" is setting up over parts of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

"We still see corn and soybeans more than two-thirds rated good to excellent but at the same time there are some lower condition crops in the eastern Corn Belt that have seen some imperfections in the growing season," Rippey said.

Both the U.S. corn and soybean crops are rated 71% good to excellent, according to USDA. Compared to last year at this time, the corn crop was 57% good to excellent and soybeans were 53% good to excellent.
