Consulant Sees Corn Yield at 125 Bu. Per Acre

August 7, 2012 10:00 AM
 

Crop consultant Dr. Michael Cordonnier has lowered his corn yield projection by 2 bu. per acre from last week to 125 bu. per acre for a crop of 10.37 billion bushels. However, he says there is a high probability the eventual corn yield will end up in the low to middle 120-bu.-per-acre range.

Meanwhile, he left his soybean yield unchanged from last week at 38 bu. per acre, but says areas that missed weekend showers could see further crop deterioration if rains don't show up soon. He left his acreage estimates unchanged for a crop of 2.78 billion bushels.
