Farmer says crops are looking good, but hot conditions are a concern

Southern Indiana Farmer Ben Kron says his crops are looking pretty good, but the forecast is a concern as his corn begins pollination.

“I don’t like seeing that going into pollination of our corn but other than that, crops have really come along way and we’ll have to see what this heat does,” he says.

He says he’s hoping for some timely rains and cooler overnight temperatures.

“Cool temperatures at night would really help pollination come along and our beans are flowering in certain pods so if we could get some cool nights and a couple of showers we definitely wouldn’t complain about that,” he says.  

Kron grows corn and soybeans in Evansville, Indiana.
