USDA delivered a bearish surprise to the market in its August Crop Production Report via larger-than-expected corn and soybean crop pegs. Next week, Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour scouts will hit the fields and traders will use the data compiled from the Tour to add or subtract from USDA's Aug. 12 peg.
A record number of scouts will join us as we sample fields Aug. 17-20. We detail USDA's August crop forecasts and explain how to use Tour data-- and much more -- in this week's newsletter.
