As scouts on the western leg of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour made their way out of South Dakota and into Nebraska, the yield reports remained positive, despite rainy weather dampening the day.
Brad Nelson, who had spent the morning scouting near Mitchell, S.D., said the crops there looked better than normal. "The farmers got to be happy with their yields coming up there," Nelson said in his audio report.
Meanwhile, Paul Neiffer, the Farm CPA, had made his way into Nebraska, and was seeing some solid-looking crops near Knox County. "The corn had really long ears," Neiffer said of his first sample pulled there, while adding that soybeans also looked pretty good.
Three stops later, though, Neiffer reported that the corn yields were fair. "Nothing spectacular," he said, but OK for that part of the state. "On the soybean side, we've seen some pretty good counts."
Meanwhile, on Twitter, people reported solid-looking crops and lots of rain in Nebraska. See more reports by following #pftour15 on Twitter.
