it's a late planted crop that is going to be harvested early.
There should be "quality" crops in areas and some areas going to be light chaffy stuff.
Would imagine total volume to be light this year.
The growing season was just to Extreme.
The crop even in the good areas simply needed 30 to 45 days of Decent "middle of the road" summer weather.
It just did Not happen this year.
It's harvest time now.
75 to 80% of the total will be done with harvest by the 1st week of Oct ( unless a flood or some other dam extreme deal pulls in ).

The IN bean yield is ridiculously high. Reality is it will be closer to 41 (there are some good areas that received big rains in July/August).
As I said in the other post, those gents might want to get off the top of their elevator and go walk some bean fields.
Of course, once NASS prints a bad number they tend not to fix it. So, the IN number in the NASS reports will overstate production all year. They will just let the basis sort it out. Kind of like corn last year. Their county corn yield for our county was higher than EVERY one of the crop insurance claims filed. There is no need for accuracy in the end, just maintain the myth to the next crop year.
