Between the Rows calls for 179-bushel corn

The Corn Marketing Program of Michigan’s annual yield tour is finding higher yields than previously estimated.

Research manager Kristin Poley tells Brownfield steady, consistent rains following the drought in June likely helped the crop catch up in development.

“This year we are projecting our statewide corn yields to be 179 bushels per acre, compared to USDA’s August estimate of 170 bushels per acre—we’re really seeing good-looking corn,” she shares.

She says tar spot pressure was limited when checks were made at the beginning of August.
