Across the Corn Belt, dry weather and pleasant temperatures favor summer crop development and maturation.  About a week ago, on August 20, more than one-third (35%) of the U.S. corn had dented and 4% of the crop was fully mature.  Monday’s high temperatures should range from near 75°F in Michigan to 90°F in parts of the middle Missouri Valley. 

On the Plains, warm, mostly dry weather continues to promote fieldwork, including Northern spring wheat harvesting, and summer crop maturation.
