Pollination issues, ear worms and immature plants seem to be common concerns as Crop Tour scouts hit the fields in parts of Nebraska, Indiana and Illinois Tuesday afternoon. Will this trend continue into day three? Scroll down to take a look at what analysts are finding in the fields.
#Soybeans got better in the eastern part of Nebraska district 9. Saline and Jefferson Counties. Average 1348 pods in these 4. Last year's tour was 1296 in this district, but all the previous fields we pulled were below that. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/kNQZ06j3Ij— Karen Braun (@kannbwx) August 20, 2019
Four more #corn stops in district 9 in Nebraska averaged 146 bpa. Three year average for tour in this district is 157 bpa. Plant populations are down 8% from both last year and the 3yr avg, and that is driving the lower yields. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/xDYXBwjQbv— Karen Braun (@kannbwx) August 20, 2019
My route in Indiana average 174.6 bpa of #corn. Last year tour average 182.33 bpa. #soybean average 1190 pods on a 3x3. Last year tour for the entire state average 1311. #pftour19 #soy down 9%. #corn down 4% pic.twitter.com/hSW6pbR9oe— Marcos Faé (@MarcosFae) August 20, 2019
Variability was present again today as we traveled through districts 4 and 5 in Western Indiana. Lowest yield was 77.9bu while our highest of the day was 208.6bu. Curious to hear Indiana's average tonight at the #PFTour19 meeting.@PioneerSeeds pic.twitter.com/a3AJF38TSY— Kristi Goedken (@KristiGoedken12) August 20, 2019
#pftour19 All corn samples for day 2. 2nd half of route 5, eastern leg. Remington, In to Bloomington, Il. From pollinating to 1/2 milk and everything in between. Huge difference from day 1. pic.twitter.com/EH3OrYeQGR— Bruce Lantzky (@Lantzkyfarms) August 20, 2019
