USDA could raise that avg corn

Yield to say 193 and still be light.

 

its early and so far there's been quite a few folks with 300+ bu whole field averages.

central IL reports mostly.

 

this is starting out as 1 of the record monster blow outs.

Re: USDA could raise that avg corn

The earliest yield report Ive got from our area is roughly 140 bu corn and extremely variable. We will know more in a week or so. Judging the whole U.S corn crop on yields from central Illinois is useless.

Re: USDA could raise that avg corn

It's hard for me to imagine a whole 80A field yielding 300+ bu of dry corn non-irrigated.  If that is really happing I would like to know what hybrid is was and more details of input cost.  Two years ago my yield monitor spiked at 300+ for a moment in a sweet spot and then fell back, that field yielded 217.

 

A lot of variability in yields around here.  Not as good as last year.

USDA could always lower their number as well.

BA is "water logged" at the moment.  Lots of rain in Iowa just now.  Actually, that 217 was three years ago.

Re: USDA could raise that avg corn

I hear "254 and 17%"...but that`s on the dry side of town and was planted 4/30.   One guy has 400 acres beans done "12%"   so what did they yield?  "12%",    yes, I know that`s the moisture, but what did they yield?    "12%   Smiley Happy  ".

 

A lot of corn snapped off above the ear, I think it should be picked ASAP as quickly as it ran out of gas.  My beans are yellow and losing leaves, 39 degrees predicted Friday night, so the peat`ll get nipped, but they need a kick in the butt. 

 

Had 2" of rain, 2"-4" predicted tonight and tomorrow, gonna be a week to 10 days before anything is done the way it looks.  Glad 3rd crop of hay is done.  

 

We had a fight getting it planted, a fight spraying it, looks like a fight getting it out, I just don`t wanna hear any 4 letter  "S word" for another good 2 1/2 months.   Smiley Happy

Re: USDA could raise that avg corn

A few fields of early beans were taken Saturday @ Sunday when it was 90 degrees.  Mid 40's from what i hear and 11 - 12%.

Then the rains moved in - will have 5+ by this afternoon with a chance for more this evening.

Dare i say it - Hard frost would be helpful now.
