MDA Weather Services Crop Tour - UPDATE

The Agriculture.com team is on the road today with the MDA Weather Services 2013 Crop Tour. According to MDA's Kyle Tapley, they've seen a lot more consistent yield estimates compared to last year. Yield estimates in Illinois and eastern Iowa look pretty strong (185-220 bu/acre range).

Tama county yield estimate: 131.5. Driest field they've seen all week.
Marshall co. IA: 197.7
Grundy co. IA: 186.6
