July fires off with soybeans flowering and corn starting to work on tassels in most of Iowa. Crops are mostly in good condition, but additional rainfall would help now, especially as flowering and seed set progresses. Since May 1, all parts of Iowa are below normal rainfall, with northeast Iowa down by only about 11/2", and north-central, central, south-central and west-central Iowa with over 4" of rain deficit. Northwest and southwest are seasonally around -3".
