The corn is continuing to pollinate.

My "hog's backyard" of soybeans is now up to my chest! (I'm only 5'2" though...)
The soybeans are now at R3, meaning they are beginning to set pods. Temperature or moisture stress during this stage can affect yield through total pod numbers, bean number per pod, and/or seed size. So this means our soybeans need a good rainfall and nice temperatures, which today is suppose to get in the high 90's with no rain - not what we want!
How is the weather in your area? Are you too going through the current drought that is across 2/3 of the United States?
