Mentor, Minnesota farmer John Swanson welcomed the recent rains. The area has been dry. “Our corn looks quite good. Wheat took a little hit because of the dry conditions in July after pollination,” says Swanson. “The soybeans are looking better now than they did awhile ago, but we’re late with the crops. We planted the crops two weeks to one month late.” Swanson says warm temperatures are welcome to get crops to maturity.
