ANKENY, Iowa (DTN) — The final day of the week-long DTN Digital Yield Tour, powered by Gro Intelligence, finds below-average corn yields in South Dakota and Minnesota due to heat and dry conditions. Soybeans fared better in both states, projected to yield at or near USDA’s five-year averages.
The DTN Digital Yield tour, now in its fifth year, takes an in-depth look at how this year’s corn and soybean crops are progressing using Gro’s real-time yield maps. Yield projections are generated by satellite imagery, rainfall data, temperature maps and other public data. Gro’s yield estimates are updated daily on a county and state level, so numbers at publication time may be different than what you find on its website.
