As Pro Farmer Crop Tour scouts continue their journeys across the central U.S., they’re finding more and more variability. However, scouts from Nebraska are reporting positive findings. Follow along on Twitter at #PFTour19.
However, Nebraska isn’t without its challenges, too.
On the East leg of the tour, scouts are seeing variability and low pod counts with the occasional “stand out” field.
On 7 stops in Indiana crop districts 3, 6 & 5 in the eastern part of the state, my route had an average pod count in a 3’x3’ square of 796. Range of 289 to 1341.6 #pftour19— Brian Grete (@BGrete) August 19, 2019
Overall, it’s evident this is a challenging year and this will be a Crop Tour like no other.
12 attempted stops and were only able to keep 7 samples. Just shows how far behind the maturity of the corn is. #pftour19— Bruce Lantzky (@Lantzkyfarms) August 19, 2019
