In line with our previous reports, our forecasted yield potential this season seems to be 10% below the historical average.
August 25, 2021
In line with previous forecasts in mid-July and early August, there is no indication that this is going to be a record — and not even an above average — year for national corn yield.
August 4, 2021
Below-average rainfall has increased the probability of low yield for rainfed sites in western and northern parts of the Corn Belt and central Iowa.

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 2021 season.

With a continuous decline in seed protein concentration in U.S. soybeans, UNL researchers examined how irrigation practices in Nebraska may contribute to this issue for soybean growers.
Nebraska farmers can evaluate three soybean management practices aimed at increasing yields by working with the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network.
April 5, 2021
Results of an on-farm research study that evaluated three management practices — planting date, seeding rate and the use of foliar fungicides and insecticides — to increase soybean yields.

Our forecasts suggest a near-average year for irrigated corn at most sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.
