Pro Farmer Crop Tour Underway- Chip Floury Previews with Leslie Smith

Teams of crop scouts organized by Pro Farmer will undertake the task of measuring this year’s corn and soybean yield potential across seven Midwest states- starting today and continuing through this Thursday, August 21st. Joining the tour for her third time as a scout is our Associate Farm Director Leslie Smith of the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network. The newsletter’s Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour has become a carefully watched August ritual over its 22-year history. It is one of the most thorough inspections of yield potential during a critical time of the Midwest growing season.

Day one is ready to begin in both Ohio and South Dakota. Smith is in South Dakota and talked as the tour was getting ready to kick off this morning with the western leg leader- Chip Floury of Pro Farmer. You can hear their full conversation by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

You can also follow Leslie today on the Tour by going here for her Twitter Feed. The hashtag to follow all of the comments from the 2014 tour is #pftour14.
