Monday Mycotoxin Crop Report for November 30, 2020

November 30, 2020

Corn Crop Highlight

  • New mycotoxin report
  • Rain falls on parts of the Corn Belt
  • Drought intensifies

What does this mean?

The USDA’s November 24 bulletin reported normal and above normal temperatures across a large part of the U.S., with the southwest and plains experiencing the highest departure from average. Cooler weather was experienced in parts of the eastern and northern regions. Rain fell on the southern and eastern Corn Belt, restricting fieldwork. Dry weather elsewhere caused drought to spread and worsen, most notably in the southwest and high plains.
