Expect top-end yield loss for irrigated corn in Nebraska

Nearly three-quarters of Nebraska’s corn crop is irrigated, and the head of the state’s corn board says Mother Nature has likely reduced top-end yields.

Kelly Brunkhorst tells Brownfield farmers could see a 10 to 20 percent loss. “This year with some of the storms coming through and the excessive heat coming during pollination, I think is really questioning whether we’re going to see some of those significant yields like we saw last year, especially on the irrigated.”

He says conditions vary widely across the state with some growers waiting for the crop to fully mature.
