Re: Floor Talk August 24

Good morning Mike,    I was wondering if you or someone else had some updated numbers to the latest export totals and what was expected for the 2011 crop.   Maybe someone has a link or can make a comment on this.   Thanks!

Crop tour results

I just wanted to beat them to the bunch.  looks like 128 yield for corn coming from the crop tour.  on the average they have over estimated the yield by 7 bushels.   According to yields I've pulled from other media sources.  

 

I have no idea how they estimated the Nebraska yield that high.  From what I've talked to people from the central corn area long I-80, to my ol' college roommate in NE NE, to myself in SENE I see around a 115 bu avearage for nebraska. 

 

I guess on the average the tour has over estimated the yield by 7 bushels.  This year is NOT AVERAGE  I think they over shot the yield this year.   

 

Missouri is totally gone this year that will affect the yield, Kansas is also bad.  

I think a national yield around that 110 bu/ac is closer to what to expect

Re: Crop tour results

They can adjust the yield to "fit" All they have to do is change the "harvested acres"

 

This year will have more "Mulligans" in it then the Mulligan family tree. What a crock of...

 

The true yield is PLANTED acres divided by # of Bushels, NOT harvested mulligan acres / bushels.

Re: Floor Talk August 24

If nebraska irrigated corn averaged 180 and we didnt grow a bushel of dry land corn we would still hit 115. If dry land average 50 bu should get you to above 130
