Based on Midewst Crop Tour- Farm Journal Sees Smaller US Corn and Soybean Harvest Compared to USDA August Numbers

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 04:52:27 CDT

Based on Midewst Crop Tour- Farm Journal Sees Smaller US Corn and Soybean Harvest Compared to USDA August Numbers The final yield estimates are in from the 2017 Farm Journal Midwest Crop Tour. After tabulating results from crop scouting data covering almost 80% of the corn and soybean growing regions of the U.S., Farm Journal believes that American Farmers will harvest a record 4.331 billion bushels of soybeans, based on an average yield of 48.5 bushels per acre.


The average yield guess from the tour for the 2017 corn crop is 167.1 bushels per acre, estimating a 13.953 billion bushel take in this fall.


Mark Bernard, the agronomist for the Eastern Leg of the Farm Journal Midwest Crop Tour last week says since much of the crop out there is still behind schedule weather will be a key to seeing these numbers come to fruition


Both corn and soybean figures released after the 4-day crop tour are lower than what USDA forecasted earlier this month.


After the final estimates came out from Farm Journal, farm broadcast colleague Ben Nuelle talked with Western Leg Tour Leader Chip Flory about the national estimates and how they square with the recent USDA numbers. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear that conversation.
