Contracted too much too soon. Average price of 60% of crop is at $5.56. Which brings up the question on this survey "Where is the circle to click on for $5-$6?"

Eastern Virginia $8.30 for Sept. 2012 delivery. Basis from +.00 Dec. to +.20 Dec. at the Bin Door . Best Corn Crop we have had in over 10 yrs. Dryland yields could average over 140+ bushels. Harvest has been slowed because of rain . Last five days some areas have received 11+ inches of rain and not because of Hurricane.

In agricultural areas which spread manure - "L & L spreaders". The yield rose to more than 200 bushels to the Acre. I appreciate the price of 9 + $ / bushel on the length of time

Last year i was lucky to book some corn at $7.15, this year my high so far is 7.98. We'll have a crop only about 10% behind last year as far as I can see in our part of Minnesota so I hope to be selling some over $8.00

Yield checks yesterday ranged from 52 - 190 bpa. - soil type matters. Unweighted average was 119 bpa which is comparable to previous drought/hot years. We have received 8.5" rain July 2 to date. The heat hurt more than lack of moisture. We have 50 bpa sold for an $8.02 average. Local elevator/poultry feed mill dropped basis .12/bu. yesterday.

here on the east side of north central ia. i was expecting 50 to 140 bu. until i started walking feilds, now so disapointed that i am looking for a disk tha tcan take down 5 to 6 ft. tall green corn plants with no ears on them. luckily kept some 11 crop corn to cover 12 crop sales at 6.00. Going to be a lot of empty bins after an early harvest.

still have most of my 2011 corn still in the bin,good thing or i would not much at all to sell this next year.it will be hard to cut demand, it will take time for it to wind down even at these prices. most corn fields here in se IL will average no more than 20 bpa. about half of the fields will be 0. sold a little for 8.40, but expect more as the magnitude of a lot of zeros gets realized.

Unfortunately, I priced 60 bu/ac early as I just knew corn would be $4 or less come fall. Now our crop doesn't look much better than that, so instead of being 33% priced I'm afraid it's much higher.

Here in south central Illinois it looks like we will have corn yields from 0 to 75 in the same field, even same rows. Beans have gained a few pods with some showers but will still be from 10 to 30 bushel. Mostly on the low side. Hope there will be enough moisture to sow wheat this fall.

These high prices will eventually create demand destruction as well as increased supply from new acres being developed for farming.
