Corn Yield Forecasts

Map showing probability of deviation from normal yields for rainfed sits in Nebraska and Kansas

2019 Corn Yield Forecasts as of September 17

September 19, 2019
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.

2019 Corn Yield Forecasts as of August 21

August 22, 2019
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).

2019 Corn Yield Forecasts as of July 15

July 19, 2019
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.
