Our forecasts suggest a near-average year for irrigated corn at most sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.
August 27, 2020
Compared with our previous forecasts, there is still a high probability of near-average yields for the majority of the irrigated sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.

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.

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).
