And did you hear about the Hamilton County, Illinois corn yield survey. It's projected 500% higher than last year. That's right, 5-zero-zero, 500%. The yield average is estimated at 154.8, for this year.

My hat's off to you East/South East growers this year, nice job, I was in your shoes last year, savor the moment, it don't last long.
I'm assuming these figures are from Roach Ag. How come nobody talks about the early yield results from these two States?

I live 40 miles from those fields, know exactly where they are, and big yields like that are common...cause we're talking bottom ground black dirt with high yield potential. All of that corn down there was planted EARLY....they were fortunate enough to miss the early floods....most planted starting in the first week in April.....
Mound City.......early plant and continued timely rains. Never had a dry spell.
Any nimrod who thinks this cherry picking yield crap is indicitive of this areas crop has their head up the rear end
There is a reason these are early yield reports...it is coming from fiends of early planted corn....the exception, not the rule down here. To extrapoate that as a harbinger of things to come is simply idiotic. Roach Ag....that pretty much says it all right there if it's the source.

Lost some potenial yeilds on rice due to cold cloudy rainy weather day in and day out, late cotton been made with out even watering.

I tend to agree with others that it is no big surprise that early yields are good. Early planted usually has a leg up on late planted. We already know Iowa, Nebraska, and Minnesota have serious issues. It is just a matter now of how bad it really turns out to be. Overall Illinois will be better than a lot of people think. It won't be Illinois' best ever crop by any means but it will be pretty good. I think Indiana and Ohio will surprise a lot of people too.
I have done a lot of scouting this week and am just not comfortable putting a number out there. I don't see how it can be as good as my numbers say so I'm gonna keep quiet for now. I still think 2008 will be my best year ever but this year could be a close second. We will know more in about two and a half weeks.
