Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast September 11, 2019

September 11, 2019 -- Not a lot of change in thought this morning. We stay warm for the next 2 days, and will be warmer than we had really thought we could be in central and southern Ohio. However, clouds over northern areas and a chance of showers will lead to less heat over the northern half of the state the next two days, with more humidity as a trade off...

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast September 9, 2019

September 9, 2019 -- Yes, it will be significantly warmer this week.

Final estimates in from 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour

The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour unveiled the stresses the corn and soybean crops faced following an excessively wet spring and record slow planting pace this year. Scouts on Crop Tour sampled around 3,000 fields across the Corn Belt in seven of the nation’s most important corn and soybean states.

Pro Farmer estimates the 2019 U.S. corn crop at 13.358 billion bushels, based on an average yield of 163.3 bu. per acre. That compares to USDA’s Aug. 1 estimate of 169.5 bu. per acre. For soybeans, the Pro Farmer production estimate is 3.497 billion bushels, with a national average yield of 46.1 bu. per acre, down from the 48.5 bu. per acre USDA estimated in August.
