Similarly to our previous forecast, there is a high probability of near-average yields for the majority of the irrigated sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.

Although it is still too early to make strong inferences about end-of-season yields for irrigated corn, there is a relatively high probability for near-average yields for a majority of sites.

The Yield Forecasting Center (YFC) will provide real-time information on corn phenology and forecasts of corn yield potential every three weeks, starting in mid-July, to aid growers and ag industry in making management, logistics, and marketing decisions through the 2020 season.

Solar radiation and temperature data for the third week of August in central Nebraska indicates it likely contributed to the lower-than-expected yields being reported by many growers this year.

Forecasted end-of-season yields for rainfed corn across the Corn Belt indicate above-average yield at two-thirds of the sites, with yields well above historical averages in Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri. See data for individual irrigated and rainfed sites.

There is a high probability of near- or above-average yields at all but two of the 37 locations studied. Corn has reached dough stage at most locations, except for irrigated corn in western and north-central Nebraska, northern North Dakota and Minnesota, and the eastern fringe of the region (Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio).

This article summarizes the simulated crop stages and yield forecasts performed on July 31 for 37 locations across the US Corn Belt.

Corn is still in vegetative stages across much of the Corn Belt. At this point, delayed planting doesn't appear to have affected yields at irrigated sites. Yields for rainfed sites vary considerably, with those on the western edge trending above normal.
