CROPS OFF TO A GOOD START

According to USDA’s Mark Schleusener, 81 percent of Illinois’ corn crop is in good or excellent condition; 77 percent of beans are rated the same. Still, overall conditions are variable across the state. “There are some places, that if you go southeast of Springfield, that are probably suffering from too much rain,” Schleusener said. “And because Illinois is a big state, there are areas on the western side of the state that don’t have enough moisture in the soil.” (Illinois News Network)
