Crop checking revisited

I found out what those messy-looking fields are all about. A farmer explained to me that if there's lodging, you know you have a good crop, because the heads are heavy. But we had drought in August, and some crops didn't fill out, so they weren't heavy enough to lodge. When the wind pounded them last week, they just bent over at the top and got that messy, tangled look.
