Just wondering how crops are looking in everyone's area. I am in northeast Kansas and we look great. Had some outstanding rains this past week. Been hearing that storage may become an issue before this fall's harvest is over. Also heard that seed dealers had only sold enough corn seed to plant 89 million acres and yet the projection is still for around 94 million planted. What are you all seeing?

southwest Manitoba here, the crops are average at best, and very late. lots of canola in full bloom in our area. the canola looks decent when in bloom but as a few of the fields come out of bloom they look pretty thin again. the wheat looks average, corn is very late, just starting to tassle/silk around here with our typical first frost maybe a little over a month away. not gonna be many profitable fields here, go a little further east in Manitoba and it gets quite a bit better I hear.

Yep, south central Mb. on top of the escarpment here. 2 weeks ago I would have predicted a bumper crop, but now we're getting too dry for a proper finish. We'll be a couple weeks later than usual as well but not as late as the SW corner of the province. I'll probably start swathing wheat by next week.

east central Minnesota, for most of the spring I thought about plowing down the crops. but in the last month they have really caught up and taken off.
don't know what the end result will be but gaining optimism!

Southern Oegon/Northern Cal Cascades. Been harvesting a neighbors dryland barley. Getting 140 bushels at 48#, 0.4% thins. Incredible for dryland on a drought year.

central manitoba, crops looked good, haven't had rain for a month now taking top yield away, beans still have chance to make 40 if we get rain soon, but highly doubt it.
corn looks nice and hanging in there but same story as the beans.
hope we get some rain soon, too much in spring, not enough later on.
mother nature... can be a *****

North Central MT. Just finished peas, it was all over the place 10-40bu/acre. Winter wheat seems to be a similar story. Hopefully start wheat tomorrow. Got maybe 3" of rain this season. If the crop didn't crust in and happened to get hit by a summer rain cloud it can be ok. Haven't seen or heard of anything great yet.

I'm also in N. Central Montana, about a hundred miles east of Lance.

We had a cold, wet spring and the crop got off to a slow start. Much of the winter wheat in this area was replanted. Spring crops were seeded late.

Since then, we've had decent rain and not a lot of heat until the last two weeks. A few are just trying winter wheat now; will probably be the end of the week before much is cut. Yields will vary a lot depending on how much winter kill damage occurred, and will probably be near to a little below average.

I don't think any spring crops will be cut until after September 1st. The spring wheat and barley look great, just a couple of weeks behind normal. Probably above average if we continue to miss the hail storms.

Around central Saskatchewan here. A lot of late seeding this year due to the wet. Didn't have much heat at all near the beginning which slowed stuff down as well.

Seems like most farms north seem to be doing better, as a lot of the rain seemed to follow a straight path east cutting through central Sask.

Canola is patchy in central. Not sure what kind of crops they are going to look like for harvest (still in bloom most places so can't see too much).

Not sure if we will see much harvesting for a week or two yet.

It's amazing to see the dryland milo burn up after all the rain we had in June and July. We had a couple fields that looked like 100bu, but now... I don't know. A good rain in August will make a milo crop, but we haven't had that rain yet.

This has been an excellent year for corn, except for all the severe storms. There is a lot of greensnap, hail damage, and wasted potential. The fields that avoided the worst of the weather look great, but there was a wide swath pretty much totaled out on June 30. A few neighbors were replanting corn in the first ten days of July; not sure how that's going to work, but I can't see it being ready to harvest before Christmas. Even then it's going to be wet and really light.

So-so around here, early planted early corn looks great but the later planted stuff is still pollenating. Beans are ok looking where they weren't drowned out. Seen an article that figured a lot of southern MN's crops would be average or below, meanwhile the rest of the country looks great...
