100+ again & corn

Today's temp is to break 100 degrees again. fortunately it is the high of the week.

The US department of agriculture has put only 35% of nebraska's corn at good to excellent.
55% of irrigated and 5% of dry corn are good to excellent. 28% is fair and 37% is poor to very poor.
nationally corn is at a much lower percent of good to excellent, only 24%.

once again it is the combination of higher temperatures and very low precipitation.
currently we are at 64% extreme drought.
