What are you predicting for corn yields this fall (leave an estimated number in the comments)?

After the July 11 WASDE report said estimated corn yields were reduced by 20 bu. from the June report, we want to know, what are you predicting for corn yields, as a percentage of what's normal or average on your farm. We'd love to know numbers, too, so leave a comment with a bushel-per-acre estimate, as well as your county/state.

Jay Co. Indiana (east Central) has the best crops (at this time of the growing the season) for many years. One more good rain and the soybeans will be made and the corn has not been stressed all season.

Waupaca Co WI Corn will be extremely variable. Yield will really depend on future rains. My best tiled heavy ground is very dry. Current range from 30 to 230 corn. Beans were in early but still are not right, they just sit there, with no pests evident. Expecting 25 bu beans , 45 is normal.

Second year in a row for almost complete crop failure. Thankful for crop insurance so we can try again next year. We have not had runoff of water since spring. Many ponds are completely dry and many are almost.

Rice county MN. Recent heavy and timely rains are very benficial. Early counts on corn appear to tell us that a range from 145 to 200 can be expected barring calamity. The beans look good but not as good as corn in relationship. Maybe 40-45 BPA.

The high is probably in for corn ? US will begin importing shortly, in my opinion.

Anonymous
on Aug 1, 2012

Because of logistics, there will be regions and times where the US will be exporting and importing at the same time. If crop drops below 120 bu avg without over 2 million additional acres abandoned, expect $10 corn to ration use and exports, which will reduce imports as well. Below 110 bu. and hard to imagine how we make it to next harvest.

Southwest NE Irrigated corn looks good ??? pollination and kernal abortion in this heat, 116 today on my thermometer with a memory is a question to be answered later. A lot of dryland corn in my area, because of poor wheat returns in the last few years, will be zeroed and cut for silage if can get cut before it falls over

Carlisle county in far western Kentucky. Corn yields probally gonna be cut somewhere between 50% - 75%. There are areas that will yield less than that. There are also some pockets of good corn( low ground that was planted early). Soybeans are hurting but there is still hope for them if we can catch some rain here soon.
