Very Cool stats from Accuweather Paul Pastelok's blog today. This shows what percentage of the corn has been planted.

Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina & Tennessee about the same as last year this time but the rest of the states have less corn planted this year vs last year so far.

Pennsylvania 35 acres planted this year vs 50 last year this time. Wow.

It's been a cold start to May and that may have had an affect. Cloudy too. March was snowy and cold as well maybe contributed.

16% of the 90 million acres of corn are in poor conditions. Wonder if the clouds and rain and cool weather have anything to do with it. I dont think heat is the cause at this point. Not sure.

With temps only in the 40s and 50s today (record cold) its just been tough on plants and crops lately. Not to mention the rain everyday. Over 14" past 2 months. Nothing is growing.

In Illinois too?
