A ridge of high heat has continued from June into July, which without reprieve from the temperatures or additional moisture could have a major impact on production. Released Monday, the weekly Crop Progress Report showed current corn crop conditions at 64% good/excellent, on par with the week prior but at risk given the latest forecast.
