Farmers across Indiana could use some rainfall to help crops get across the finish line. According to the USDA’s latest crop progress report 4% of Indiana’s corn crops is mature and 51% is dented with 66% of the crop rated good to excellent.
Ben Kron farms in southwest Indiana. “The corn at least is really just a little bit past half milk line heading down to about 1/4 left of milk line and so we still have grain fill yet going on and a couple of rains still wouldn’t hurt.”
Soybeans are rated 66% good to excellent with 6% of the crop dropping leaves. Kron says most of his beans still have several weeks before they’re ready.
