The crop has taken a pretty significant leap forward during the past week. It's probably time to take a yard stick out to most fields in the area.

This report includes new data from Scott County on May 22, and on May 26 and 27 from McLeod, Meeker, Wright, Benton, Stearns and Morrison. Some NOTES ABOUT FIELD OBSERVATIONS are included following the numbers.
