September 14 - 20, 2014
Last week had a few cool nights including one with heavy frost in some localities. Corn in certain areas was brown in the upper half of the stalks meaning no more yield but lots of time for dry down. Some soybeans have also shed their leaves which indicates that they would have been hit by a heavy frost. Heat units failed to catch up with the cool nights, meaning it is unlikely the heat units will reach the ten-year average this year.
