Corn yield forecast at record high

You know it’s a strange summer in South Dakota when your sprinkler-less lawn never goes brown. It seems like every time the ground has gotten even the slightest bit dry this summer, we’ve received more rain.

The unusually good growing conditions have led the South Dakota Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service to increase its corn-yield forecast to 147 bushels per acre, which is a record-high forecast for our state. You can click here to read more about it.

That’s an incredible forecast that, if it holds true, will far surpass the actual yield record of 133 bushels set in 2008. Too bad the price of corn is way down.
