Drought Monitor

Watch the US drought monitor. The map shows two major areas of concern. First is Ohio and much of eastern Indiana; second is western Iowa, eastern Nebraska and parts of Kansas. What concerns me is how much of Iowa has turned very dry over the last two weeks. Rain is in the forecast for later this week. It needs to hit in the dry areas by late this week or corn yields will move lower in Iowa.
