Soybean yield estimates are all over the board as many midwestern farmers wait for harvest to begin.
Stan Born in central Illinois says while a summer dry spell stressed the crop some, it still looks pretty good.
“Soybeans, I believe, will be above my five-year average of 62 bushels per acre. I think we have a chance of being in the 70+ range this year.”
Dawn Scheier’s farm in southeast South Dakota got hit with a spring derecho bearing 120 mph winds which forced them to replant more than 500 acres of soybeans that saw very little water in August.
