What will your corn yield in 2015?

Growing conditions have been variable across the Corn Belt this season, and even across states. Because of the variability, we'd like to know what kind of corn yields you're expecting. Will your yields be above average for your farm? Below? Take our latest poll and let us know. Also, feel free to leave a comment with your predicted number, as well as your county/state (comments are anonymous).

 


How much GM corn will you plant?

Conventional seed planting is on the rise, a trend driven by tight margins. (Read our recent story.) Will you trend toward more conventional seed in order to keep costs down? Or will you stick with stacks and traited hybrids? Take our latest poll and let us know what percentage of your acres will be conventional versus genetically modified hybrids.

 


Will you cut crop insurance to save costs?

Low corn prices. Low soybean prices. Cut costs. Save money. We've been reading these headlines a lot over the past months. And they don't seem to be going away. But what's coming up is the deadline for choosing crop insurance. Given low prices and cost cutting, will you cut crop insurance in order to save some money this year? Take our latest poll and let us know. Feel free to comment your thoughts below!


Should GMOs be labeled?

Recently, some major food companies have decided to label GMOs in their food products (but not because they believe GMO products are unsafe). The state of Vermont has chosen to label GMO foods, too. In light of these decisions, we'd like to know: Do you think GMO labeling is necessary? Should this be a federal issue? State issue? Or is GMO labeling just not necessary? Feel free to leave your comments below!

 


How much nitrogen will you sidedress this year?

Timely nutrient application is a must for farmers, particularly in a low-price season. Will you sidedress nitrogen this year to take advantage of feeding the crop when it needs it? Maybe you'll apply only some nitrogen as sidedress? Or, will you stick with spring and fall applications only? Take our poll and let us know, and feel free to leave comments about your nutrient application practices below!

 


What percent of your corn acres will yield higher than last year?

Some farmers are saying the 2016 harvest will be a bumper crop. Others are saying it's not.

Analysts are for the most part saying yields will be high. However, there is a small percentage that say it's a wait and see game. How do you think your yields will do over last year's crop?


How did your corn yield this harvest?

Some areas experienced drought while others experienced near perfect growing conditions in the Corn Belt in 2016. How did your corn yield where you are located?
