In this study, 12 spatially representative sites are chosen on the bases of spatial equality and completeness of the data.

Results indicate that there are indeed significant statistical relationships between dependent (com or soybean price) and independent (precipitation, temperature, and com or soybean yield) variables. Engaging geographic patterns are found in the maps of the results.
