Corn Yield Rise Again, Soybeans Follow Suit

Nov 02, 2011

Nearly 300,000 corn acres have been reported to the AgWeb.com Harvest Map from what is just short of 1,000 different data samples. Farmers reporting soybean yields have eclipsed 500 with more than 140,000 acres. 

Corn yields are approaching the USDA October production report figure, but still fall short at 147.62 bu.acre. Soybean number continue to creep higher and outperform USDA estimates by nearly 5 bu./acre.
