Issues Developing For the Corn and Soybean Crops?

In many areas, the predicted amounts are below average, especially in the Midwest. The two weeks have seen rainfall percents quite a bit lower than normal.

Given the dryness already in progress and the potential for continued dryness, the concerns about inadequate moisture seem well-founded.
