  • Corn yield averaged 198 bu/acre after 14 stops in counties of Clinton, Jones, Cedar, Iowa, Benton, Tama, Black Hawk and Bremer
    • This is above last year’s 190.7 bu/acre and the 3-year avg of 183.8 bu/acre
    • Corn and soybean crops showing good potential compared to first three days of tour due to irregular rains in the eastern Corn Belt
    • Yields ranged from 165 bu/acre in Iowa county to 258 bu/acre in Blackrock county
  • “Yields are more consistent and corn ears are heavy,” says Brian Grete, editor for the Pro Farmer newsletter
    • “We can see a really strong corn crop, especially as we head north with heavy ears”
