A storm blew through parts of Wabash County, Ind., last night causing a soggy start for day two of the eastern leg of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour.

“We’re seeing lots of puddles between rows, and lodging going on that the wind might have caused last night,” tour scout and USDA-NASS corn expert Chris Hawthorn told U.S. Farm Report Host, Tyne Morgan, this morning.

Morgan asked Hawthorn whether fields had too much moisture in them for mid-August.

“I don’t know if this is an anomaly or the norm,” Hawthorn replied.

He added that scouts were seeing more variability in Indiana crops than they had seen in Ohio yesterday.
