Pro Farmer’s National Corn and Soybean Crop Estimates

Pro Farmer Friday released its crop estimates from the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. For corn, Pro Farmer estimates a 13.2 to 14.4 billion bushel crop in 2019, with an average yield of 163.3 bushels per acre. For soybeans, Pro Farmer estimates a 3.49 billion bushel crop, with a yield of 46.1 bushels per acre. Pro Farmer lowered corn harvested acreage 217,000 acres from USDA’s August estimate. The national estimates reflect Pro Farmer’s view on production and yields. They take into account data gathered during the Pro Farmer Crop Tour and other factors, such as crop maturity, acreage adjustments, historical differences in tour data versus USDA’s final yields, and areas outside those sampled on Crop Tour.  Find state-by-state results and analysis
