There is a lot of talk about heat damage to the crop over the weekend. Progressive Ag Marketing market analyst Brian Strommen is uncertain. “The crop is fairly small so it doesn’t demand as much water at this timeframe. July is more critical for corn and August is more critical for the soybeans. If you look at the dry, hot forecast, it’s not beneficial to the crop, but not as critical as July and August.” The excessive heat is not helpful. “The crop is at a stage where the heat can hurt it, but again, it’s not as critical as pollination or pod filling time.”
