Scattered showers amounted to a few tenths to nothing. Crops look great. Corn is tasseling and soybeans are rapidly growing at the R3 stage. Planes are starting to spray corn with fungicide.

Northern Peoria County received a nice rain, while Marshall County was almost flooded in some areas. Crops still look good. Some yellow spots are showing up in corn and soybeans. Japanese beetles have shown up, and are starting to eat. So far, they are in check, except in the sweet corn. Corn is starting to tassel. First tassels on June 25, which is the earliest I can remember.
