Thursday, August 15, 2019 3:15PM CDT Gro Intelligence's corn yield estimates in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio diverge drastically from USDA, ranging from 21 to 28 bushels per acre lower, while soybean yields range from 3 to 7 bpa lower.
Wednesday, August 14, 2019 4:38PM CDT Corn and soybean yields are running significantly below 2018 levels, particularly in Iowa, where Gro Intelligence forecasts average corn yield will drop by nearly 10 bushels this year.
