In the event of an unanticipated turn of events, Nebraska crops are expected to yield Indiana – with a margin of over 10 bottoms. per hectare of corn and nearly 300 soy pods per 3×3 square.
Despite all the challenges, Nebraska seems to be coming in or below the average level of corn and soybean yields. Indiana, on the other hand, is looking at lower yields than previous Pro Farmer estimates.
Indiana maize dropped sharply to 161.46 bu. per acre and soybeans reduced to 923.94 pods per 3×3 square. This means that soybeans threw nearly 400 pods per 3×3 square compared to last year's Pro Farmer issue, and corn dropped more than 20 feet. per hectare. However, last year maize and soybeans had remarkable estimates of 182.33 and 1.311.87 respectively.
Clearly, Indiana farmers had to fight to get crops on the ground – and Mother Nature was fighting just as much. Compared to last year's Pro Farmer estimates, Indiana maize yields sank nearly 12% and soybeans dropped by nearly 30%.
"When we look at some of the factors surrounding corn that have led to a lower yield estimate," says Brian Greyte, editor of Pro Farmer and presenter for the Eastern Tour. "The average number of ears has reached 93.7, down from 102 last year. The kernel rows were not much above 16 and the grain length was up to 6.5 inches compared to 6.7 last year. "
The soil is drier than last year —When estimated at 5.1 – this year is only 3.8.
"The immaturity of both corn and soybeans is the most important story and the one we knew, but looking at the data we have seen through Ohio and Indiana so far, it is determined that soybeans cost more than corn yields, which are the surprise, "continues Grete.
The Crop Tour scouts took 191 soybean samples and 188 corn samples in total to reach those estimates.

Nebraska maize yield champion 172.55 acres per hectare and soy pods per 3×3 square beats 1,210.83 Each crop is slightly below last year's estimates of 179.17 buts per hectare in maize and 1,298.08 pods per 3×3 square. This is only 3.7% of last year's corn estimates and 3.1% of last year's Pro Farmer soy estimates.
"We're actually 2.9% off the average for three years," says AgriTalk host Chip Flory. “David Michaelson made a great observation this morning. It seems like last year was just great, and this year everything we do returns on average [in Nebraska]. "
Income ranged from 50 bu. per acre to 224 bu. per acre, according to Crop Tour presenter Jeff Wilson.
"Landfall is in relatively good shape," says Wilson. "It rains when needed and is planted."
Compared to some neighboring states, Nebraska has fewer barriers to plant acres of about 800,000 acres. Soy is generally average.
"And it's a variable crop, but it turns out to be average," Wilson explains. "There are not many pods or many blooms out there to earn much more than what we see today."
