The latest crop report is good news for producers both statewide and regionally according to Ag Expert Kent Thiesse with MinnStar Bank.

“84 percent of the corn and 81 percent of the soybeans have been rated good to excellent,” said Thiesse. “I’ve had a chance to travel around southern Minnesota recently and I’d say those numbers are similar to what we’ve seen here.”

Thiesse says there are pockets of the area still reeling from too much rain last week and a hail storm last month, but overall it’s been mostly good news.
