A gamut of yields in the eastern Corn Belt
By: Mike McGinnis
Yields are widely variable this fall in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Jim Kreider, a retired Lancaster, Pennsylvania farmer, says the corn in his area is below average. Soybean pods are lacking beans. It was too wet this year, he says. Yields are below the area's 50 bu./acre avg. Corn normally makes 150 bushels, but below that this year. Kreider serves as a hay broker, in his retirement years.
