    Pretty good indicator of the US corn crop, as corn hates 100+ degree weather. No wonder we have a glut of corn of corn over recent years.

      I think you mean GMO corn. That’s not the corn that was grown in 1936. You’re comparing apples to oranges.

        Would be interesting to see what 1930’s heat and drought would do to GMO corn.

        The last time we had some semblance of a hot, dry summer (2012), there was still quite a reduction of the US corn crop.

        Obviously, the crop yields are much higher now than during the 1930’s. It is percentage reduction from the mean that I am talking about, and it is still heat/drought sensitive in that regard.
