Corn and Soybean Yields Rise Ahead of Thanksgiving
Nov 23, 2011
Happy Thanksgiving, the time when America celebrates an abundant harvest. And from the looks of the farmer-reported yield data on the AgWeb Corn Harvest Map and the AgWeb Soybean Harvest Map, the harvest has gotten more abundant as the season progressed.
Since last reported two weeks ago, the average corn yield on our maps has jumped to 148.67 bu./acre. Soybeans jumped as well to 46.30 bu./acre.
These numbers are from more than 1,100 farmer-reported corn yields on nearly 340,000 acres. Almost 600 farmer-reported soybean yields come from more than 170,000 acres.
