Heat Wave Threatens Midwest Crops

Late-planted corn and soybean crops are in the hot seat this weekend and early next week as a scorching heat wave bears down upon the Midwest and the Great Great Plains Region. Several states in these areas are forecasted to see temperatures well over the 100ºF degree mark. If extreme heat lasts more than a week, moisture stress would severely impact late planted corn and soybean crops because of their shallow root systems. In June, after this year’s historic flooding in the Midwest, weather conditions have to be close to perfect for the remainder of the summer to help the crops that weren’t destroyed to flourish during a shortened growing season.
