Description

One of the definitions of perspective is "to see clearly". I don't claim such ability, especially in late October when neither the final crop yields nor research results are known. Most would call 1991 an unusual crop year, but I'm reminded of a former colleague who was fond of saying that in the last 30 years he had yet to see a "normal" year. Perhaps the best word to describe the 1991 crop year would be crazy. This is especially true when you consider that the state's corn and soybean yields will end up close to "average".
