Dodging raindrops and counting pods in Indiana. Pod counts are improved compared to our route through Ohio. These fields weren’t planted until mid-June but have good potential. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/ytI8GadbDu— Clinton Griffiths, AgDay Anchor 📺 🎙 🖊 (@ClintonReports) August 20, 2019
Stop 5 in Indiana. Most mature crop for my route on the tour. No wonder #soybean came at 1578.0. Planting dates is major component for crop yield. Corn a little disappointing at 172.6 bpa. Low ear population was an issue. Which is something very common for this year. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/mvkkLPVJGt— Marcos Faé (@MarcosFae) August 20, 2019
