AgWeb Editor Greg Vincent takes a big-picture look at agriculture and current events.
More than 300,000 acres of corn have been reported to date from nearly 1,050 data points for the AgWeb Corn Harvest Map. To date, the average reported yield is 147.10 bu./acre. On the Soybean Harvest Map, 155,000 acres show a farmer-reported yields at 45.73 bu./acre. This is from 546 submissions.
Both these numbers are slightly down from last week when the average corn yield was 147.62 bu./acre. Soybeans were at 46.30 bu./acre.
