The weather was warm but pleasant last week. We received a nice rain shower from .6 to .9 of an inch. Crops are growing well. Soybean rows are filled in, and the corn is getting tall. Soybeans continue to set pods and corn pollination is almost complete. I am excited to share that I was appointed to the Illinois Soybean Association Board for District 1. I look forward to learning more about and promoting our soybeans.
