Re: Bean yields

Hi don. mine were 54-56. good, but not great. One field supoosedly made 61, but hardly looked like it. poorest one was 51 and had 28% hail damage with alot of broke over bruised stems i couldn't get in the combine. right now(with my aph and coverage) I'm right at revenue guarantees, depending on the final harvest price.

Re: Bean yields

Well rswbuck,

The corn belt is not the one raising "the" bean crop --------- only a portion of it.

Re: Bean yields

Ok I will print it again.........Since the bean belt is proving to yield above 50 why not raise the nationa yield.  Seems everyone in the US that raises beans is averaging above 50.

Re: Bean yields

SWMN has been a honey hole for a couple years, not so much this year for sure.  Bean yeilds have been off for sure.  60 bushel ground in the mid 40's.  Had some 100% hailed out and replanted end of june early july going 30-40.  Just rolling into corn and not hearing anything good.  I know we are a very small part but we will pull down averages for sure.  190 bushel ground that is in the 140-150 range and with low test weights (52-55).  Atleast we have missed recent rains and don't have to deal with the mud.  Should finish beans locally this week and alot of corn will disapear also.

Re: Bean yields

Central Ohio, our beans in high forties. We have a good crop for our area, but no where near the best. In a real good year we can be in the mid fifties. Very dry cool august helped the corn, no help on the beans.

I am not sure if you live under a rock or what, but I will put it to you this way

 

We have good bean yields, but will not beat our all time home run year which was the year the nat avg was 44.

 

I think you need to look beyond the flourescent lighting that is your trading cube and realize that good bean yields are nothing new this year.

 

Just as with corn.  There was 300 bushel corn in IL in years that the nat avg was 153.

 

I understand we have a good crop, but the estimates: and they are just that estimates; even the Jan report: that are being thrown around are a bit redicioulous.

 

Again, we have a good crop, but to just keep jacking things up because its the trend doesnt make it real.

 

I am a bear in the soya camp looking for local basis swings this winter thru next summer and at least one more pop on the board before next spring.

 

I am a bull in the corn and wheat camp.  I do not think the nat prod number is over 14B and it may take till next year too see it.  I also know corn acres WILL take a nose dive and put us right back into tight stocks to use ratios especially if 2015 is just a ho hum growing season or even worse.  Wheat acres WILL be down in the SRW belt, thus course grains as a whole should tighten.

 

Ergo we are in a violent swing where it will pay to move beans and hold corn...........................AND THEN..........when we swing back the other way it will pay to move corn and hold beans.............

 

Keep in mind, over time DEMAND is going to grow so as this oscilation continues we will move towards a common point of tight supplies on all fronts again.....................these are my short term, intermediate and long term thoughts....

Re: Bean yields

12.8 now it's 14, come on MT that a huge bump. The point is there are no bad areas in beans, we usually have a clunker in a portion of the belt we don't have this year. Trading cube, that funny because you must mean a smart phone and a square combine cab.
