Is your weather getting wetter?

40 years of weather data would seem to suggest a trend of more precipitation during the U.S. growing season. The U.S. has not experienced a significant and widespread drought in the Cornbelt since 2012, and in the last 13 years, 12 of those years have seen above normal precipitation during the growing season.

Is this a trend you feel on your own farm? If so, has this influenced your agronomic practices or decisions? Do you feel like the market potential for a summer rally is still a viable marketing option?
