STANLEY (JAY) SOLOMON UPDATES

Region 1

Stanley Solomon

Much of the corn in NW IL was starting to roll and pineapple on late last week. The rain on June 24 -25 and late this week along with cooler conditions reduced this impact. Many fields of corn and soybean field seem to be behind in height and canopy closure at this point. Some of the early planted field which received timely showers during May and June look more normal. This really shows the spotty distribution of late spring showers.

Wheat fields are starting to turn. Late last week, I did notice wind damage in a couple of wheat fields between Pearl City and Freeport. The picture included shows what appeared to be straight line wind damage. Another field had more swirled and random damage.

Much of the corn in NW IL was starting to roll and pineapple on late last week. The rain over the weekend and cooler conditions reduced this impact through mid week. Many fields of corn and soybean field seem to be behind in height and canopy closure at this point. Some of the early planted field which received timely showers during May and June look more normal. This really shows the spotty distribution of late spring showers.

Rain over the weekend through Monday was timely and provided much needed moisture. Some farmers are still working to finish planting the final fields.
