What will your corn yield this fall?

We asked last year and had an overwhelming response. So, this year we're going to ask again: As a percentage of what's average on your farm, how do you think your corn will yield this year? Many acres were planted late, some have struggled with flooding, others with continued drought. So, what will your corn yield? 100% of average? 50%? Better than average? Take the poll and let us know. Be sure to leave comments with predicted yield numbers (include soybean numbers, too), along with your county and state.

We could get to average depending on our frost date

We had a wet spring, late plant, 30% replant, and a dry growing season = a 70 to 80% crop.

With the late planting season, and the lack of heat this summer, corn will not reach it's full potential. Some fields look pretty good, but very late, while those on lighter soils are stressing severely from lack of rain.

I had some flooding early with my last replant replant June 28th. Then came hot dry weather during early pollination which left some tip back. I do not believe corn will yield as good as some think. Smaller ears as you get inside field.

I actually think it will be 90-95%, but 100% was the closest so I went with that. Soybeans will be lucky to make 80% as they were planted 30-45 days late and extremely vulnerable to an average frost date

5% flood and ponding damage 95 % exc populations,ear set, and kernal counts, Best year in 45 with Sunshine and cool during July. 180 bpa sold and hedged. Should be about 75 %
sold at this point. Last year of farming, maybe the best?

we are in a small area of north Iowa that were able to plant corn between May 10th and 15th so it looks good barring a frost before October 10th

Very poor polination. Can hardly find an ear with good fill. Most ears aré fifty percent . A lot of ears have zero to thirty percent fill. Cold wet spring took its toll on the development of crop .

This family farm has been in continuous operation since about 1840 so we have many records. Now owned by a Family Trust, the last 6 yr average is 168.3 bu/acre (drought), with 5 year average of 172. It should do that minimum yield.
