'Awesome' harvest weather continues
Make no mistake that this is an awesome weather pattern coming up for getting row crops harvested throughout the Nation's midsection. Whether you are harvesting corn, soybeans, cotton, sugar beets, or any other type of crop, any delays that are seen for the next ten days will be brief (a lot of places will get no rain at all in that period) and I get no indication of a turn to any sort of wetter weather in the 11-15 day time frame either.
Temperatures are also going to be exceptionally warm, particularly for today through about next Tuesday. What a difference a year makes, as October of 2009 was one of the coldest and wettest such months ever seen for a large part of the center of the country. I do not see much talk about it, and certainly do not see much market reaction to it, but personally I am quite worried about how this weather shapes up with regards to winter wheat planting.
