    X2.... It could be an interesting fall. With a crop like this there will surely be some long lines at the elevators also!!!!

    Here in west central Mo. I think we will have 175-220 bu corn & soybeans averaging in the 50 -60 bushel per acre range with all the rain we have got in August it really helped the bean crop. But it is sickening to see fall cash corn prices just below the 3.00 per bushel level
