Max Armstrong shares some news out of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. They are recruiting volunteers at heat.gov for a heat watch program. The idea is to record how hot the temperatures gets in heat islands in urban areas.

Plus, in agribusiness, the corn condition for this week fell in several states. So far, the biggest decrease was in Illinois with a 19-point drop in the good to excellent condition category. Followed by Indiana with a 10 point drop, Missouri farmers reported  a 9 point fall and Iowa is showing a 5 point drop in the good to excellent category.

And in technology, a new I-phone update is being released this year. It will allow users to set multiple timers and help with grammatical errors.

Many people take pride in their pet names. Ohio-based Nationwide Insurance is holding a contest for wacky pet names and next week, the public will vote.

The contest is not limited to dogs and cats. It also includes birds, rabbits, ferrets and even pot-bellied pigs. Max shared he likes the name for a dog out of New Jersey with the name, Scooby Moo.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
