Crop conditions across the country are continuing to deteriorate due to excessive heat and dry weather. The July 17, 2012 National Drought Summary provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), reported 38 percent of the nation's corn crop was in poor to very poor condition compared to 30 percent the week before. For soybeans, 30 percent were in poor to very poor condition compared to 27 percent the week before. Additionally, 54 percent of the nations pasture and rangeland was in poor to very poor condition, which is a 4 percent jump compared to the week before and an all-time high for the 1995-2012 growing season weekly history. 
To deliver producers up-to-date information, Farm Progress recently devoted an entire webpage to drought coverage - www.datelinedrought.com. The page is a unified source of information from their state and regional publications along with Farm Futures. DatelineDrought.com offers a library of links to articles reporting on the country’s current weather patterns and growing conditions, while providing daily video news and commentary from a Farm Progress team member. Video narrative is being recounted by Max Armstrong, Farm Progress America director of broadcasting, Bryce Knorr, senior editor, Farm Futures, and agricultural meteorologist Greg Soulje.
