Re: National Avg Corn Yield vs. Avg Plant Dates

Thanks.  I understand how it affects me, and my locality.  I'm more interested in something like this chart below, only instead on a national level:

 

 

 

Then we could compare the final national avg corn yield fluctuations to that chart.

Re: National Avg Corn Yield vs. Avg Plant Dates

you're welcome----did the Mn chart make sense?

 

looks like yield begins to be influenced by plant date after mid May------then really falls from then into June.

 

int how US -IL dates have become earlier over the yrs.

Re: National Avg Corn Yield vs. Avg Plant Dates

Found what I was thinking about --

It's kind of lengthy and complicated, but it's a good read.  Would like to see it on a national level instead of just a few states, or take the biggest 5-6 corn-producing states and combine the data into one chart (instead of one for each state).

Re: National Avg Corn Yield vs. Avg Plant Dates

how would you paraphrase article?

 

also, how would you compare the simple empirical idea of late planting vs the "model" you see.

 

thank you

Re: National Avg Corn Yield vs. Avg Plant Dates

That requires more thought/time than I can afford at the moment. 

 

Maybe later.

 

Here's another (and current) article I just noticed that kind of summarizes similar information:
