In central Indiana, Brad Downing is pleased with his corn and soybean crop. “We were really dry in early June and in the ten-to-14 days, we’ve received four to four-and-a-half inches on the low end to a high of seven-and-a-half to eight inches. It’s never come more than an inch at a time.” Most of Downing’s corn is in the V-10 stage. Soybeans are just beginning to bloom. The Greentown, Indiana farmer is looking at nutritional and biological products to push his crop and take advantage of the current price situation. “It’s a good crop, but it’s not a home run by any means.”
