Hot and Dry? 08/24/2011 @ 4:09pm I have to laugh when the corn belt talks about hot and dry. 45 plus days over 100 degrees, many over 105, and total rainfall at my place in SC KS for the year at about 8 inches. Fertilized for 120 bu corn and received 20 bu on refuge acres and below 2 on the rest. Worst thing is I know of others who have had more heat and less rain. Soybeans about ready to give up now. Good news.... 104 is 4 degrees cooler than yesterday.... there's always next year. :-)
