There is no bad corn in the corn belt which will raise the national averages. Minnesotat is below the three year average but it is still above a 170 nationa average. The huge once in a lifetime yields more then mask the nebraska and south dakota averages. I don't have the acre breakdown to average out the results, that will be tomorrow. Lets see the magic chip will use because he throws out the Pro farmers tour results and compiles his numbers to match the fsa.

Pro Farmer 2013 had Minnesota at 181.09 and NASS final came in at 160. For the 5 years prior to that, Pro Farmer averaged 176.25 while NASS finals averaged 169.6.
Please explain from that data why the MN crop has to get bigger. I know, I know, you can't.

Clay you are right it does not have to get bigger. I think MN is maybe low 160s. Lot of damage done early in the growing season. In reality it does not matter the yield per acre but total bushels that come out of the state. I think if you average every acre that was planted in MN this year that we would not break 160.
