Indiana Fields in Rough Shape, Crop Tour Scouts Report

August 17, 2015 04:05 PM

Scouts on the eastern leg of the 2015 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour saw a lot of variability this morning in Ohio crops, and that story remained true into Indiana.

Scouts reported yield estimates as low as 46.4 bu. per acre in Allen County; 84 bu. per acre in Wells County; and 96 bu. per acre in Adams County. Many saw evidence of lack of maturity, with one scout finding corn that wasn't even waist high.

However, further into the state, the crops started looking a bit stronger.

"We drove through three Indiana counties this afternoon before turning south a Marion. And we didn't just turn a corner directionally," said Ben Potter, AgWeb social media editor. "Our fourth Indiana sample today took a turn for the better."

On Twitter, scouts documented the less-than-stellar yields. To see more from-the-field reports, follow #pftour15 on Twitter.
