The Between the Rows crop tour is projecting higher yields than USDA’s latest estimate for Michigan.
Kristin Poley is the research manager for the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan.
“Everything is extremely variable,” she says. “We are projecting statewide yields based on our counts to be 177 bushels per acre which is a little bit higher than USDA’s August estimate of 170.”
She says county averages are varied because of scattered precipitation.
