Guess I was born at night. According to the USDA the corn crop condition declined between August 6 and the first report in September. Therefore it only makes sense that the yield would increase 3 bushels per acre. Here I have been hooping for good weather to optimize my yields when what I really needed was drought, floods, hail, and wind storms to increase yields. Go figure guess we have been doing it wrong.
Either that or USDA is just pitching #'s out so the trades can make a lot of $ on inside info.
Re: corn yields????
Folks might be surprised how much 300+\- bu corn averages are out there.
gonna be just a few 100+\- bean averages too.
maybe, just maybe a 16 billion bu corn crop total.
more likely a 15 billion + though.
