Knee high by the 4th may be old - but saying you don't know till it's in the bin will never go away. Crops look awesome in this area -- but storms over the past few days have taken away from the yield potential or completely destroyed .
We have one field of beans that has received 13 inches of rain since June 26 -- that should make great yielding soybeans but the hail just reduced the potential anywhere from 10 to 50%...we won't know till the combine starts rolling and it varies across the field.

We have experienced 2 storms in the last two days and there are some farmers not too far away that lost the majority of their crop if not all.
I just wanted to post a few pictures of the damage done. Yes, some of these farmers lost all opportunity to harvest a crop.
