Description

The October 1 Crop Report forecast 1993 Iowa corn and soybean yields at 105 and 34 bu/ac, respectively. What will the November and January reports indicate? Based on observations as of October 20, with 80% of corn yet to be harvested, 105 bu/ac appears very optimistic. The need for good weather for both in-field drying and corn harvest are paramount at this time. The oat crop was the worst in recent history and problems with 1993 forage crops have been well documented.
