Supersweet corn planting is completed, but we are continuing to plant the last of the conventional corn.
The weather in Idaho this past week had below normal temperatures for the first part of the week, but became close to normal for the rest of the week. This coming week looks to be warmer with temperatures generally expected to be above normal much of the week. Irrigation water supplies on the upper Snake River should have adequate irrigation water supplies for most of the Magic Valley (Buhl local areas) this growing season.
Very little corn was planted this past week due to the wet field conditions.
Temperatures in Minnesota this past week were slightly above normal overall, with high temperatures in the 80’s most of the week. All areas received widespread rainfall again this past week, receiving an additional 3 – 9 inches in most areas. These first 20 days of June are now the wettest on record in Minnesota with many areas seeing localized flooding. High temperatures are forecasted to be slightly above normal early this coming week (highs in the 80’s), before cooling to slightly below normal later in the week. There are chances of 5 rainy days in the next 7 days of this coming week, so it appears we will continue in a very wet pattern for the coming week.
We have now finished supersweet corn planting in the Central Sands.
There was heavy rain this past week in Wisconsin. This week is forecasted to rain early and late in the week. Temperatures will be slightly below normal and start to warm back up to normal by the weekend for the Midwest.
