Recent storms this summer have caused hail damage to corn and soybeans: sometimes just holes in leaves, other times leafs are shredded or gone.  The two files listed here are excellent resources from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that explain the effect hail damage can have on corn and soybeans.
