Twitter Survey 2012 Corn Yield Expectations

Jul 19, 2012

 

Here are the results of the Twitter survey conducted over the past several days.
We asked “FARMER ONLY” participants for the following information: the state where you farm, 5 year avg. yield or APH, 2011 actual yield, and your estimated 2012 yield.
We recognize this isn't a scientific study; however, we felt a survey from farmers specifically would give us a good cross-section of the realistic situation.
Here are the results from the farmers who responded to the survey. Below the results, you'll find the individual list by producer and state.
39.................. Totals farms represented in the survey.
12……………..… States including 1 entry from Canada represented.
 
169.96……... 5yr avg. or APH- production represented by the group.
 
168.39………. 2011 avg. production represented by the group.
 
114.64…….… 2012 avg. YIELD ESTIMATE represented by the group.
 
32%.............. 2012 % estimated loss from 2011
