Murray County #Minnesota. Great looking corn for July 4th. Unfortunately, it's August 22nd. Has the potential of 214 bushels per acre. Needs a miracle to get that far. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/L4bB6SzZsO— Dustin Hoffmann, Iowa Ag Radio (@Dustin_IAAgBiz) August 22, 2019
There’s a noticeable difference in Iowa’s crops north if I-80. Still not seeing 100 pod counts like in past years, but plants are a little more loaded than what they say yesterday. And corn yields were north of 200 bu/a, which is expected in Iowa. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/88UtfHV27G— Tyne Morgan (@Tyne_Ag) August 22, 2019
Slightly below-average soy field just south of Fayette. Estimated pod count of 1,011, compared with 3-year average of 1,150. May have interrupted an afternoon delight between these two Japanese beetles. #pftour19 pic.twitter.com/Z9TewPeXrd— Michael Hirtzer (@mhirtz) August 22, 2019
