The national estimates above reflect Pro Farmer's view of production and returns. They take into account data collected during the Crop Tour and other factors, such as crop maturity, area adjustments we made, historical differences in Tour data versus USDA's final yield, areas beyond those tested on the Crop Tour, etc. That's why the state provides the numbers below are different from the Crop Tour numbers.
Thousands of farmers, agribusiness leaders, and national and local media attended a series of meetings across the Midwest this week as part of the annual Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. Crop Tour focused on crop conditions entering the final stretch of the 201
Pro Farmer, a division of the Farm Journal, shared its long-awaited production estimates for the US corn and soybean crops in 2019 after analyzing information from the 27th Annual tour and other sources.
The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour unveiled the strain grain and soybean growth was exposed to after an overly wet spring and record-slow planting rate this year. Scouts on the Crop Tour sampled around 3,000 fields across the Corn Belt in seven of the country's most important grain and soybean states.
Pro Farmer estimates the US corn crop in 2019 to be 13.358 billion bushels, based on an average yield of 163.3 bu. per acre. This compares with the USDA's August 1 estimate of 169.5 bu. per acre. For soybeans, the Pro Farmer production estimate is 3,497 billion bushels, with a national average yield of 46.1 bu. per acre, down from 48.5 bu. per acre USDA estimated in August.
"Ear counts were lower than last year in all Crop Tour states as a result of the harsh spring conditions," said Brian Grete, Pro Farmer editor. "We also found a corn crop that in many cases was several weeks in maturity due to the record-high planting."
Jeff Wilson, Pro Farmer & # 39; s senior market analyst, said: "Soybean counts in a 3-foot 3-foot square were down sharply above
