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.

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.

Southern Barron County WI-Northern Dunn County We have a good chance at a 40 bushel bean crop, hay has been average but will easily get an extra cutting as we started so early. Corn was definately hurt on the lighter soils. There is an area of the northern parts of the county that will see above average yields but not here. I expect we ill have potential for 140 bushel if we can continue to get adequate rain.

It takes a lot of real good acres to make up for zero yields on
poor or no polination stalks. 80 bu/ac corn can be common.
