Big bean yields reported, corn average to above

08/26/2010 @ 3:22pm

CHICAGO, Illinois (Agriculture.com)--It's considered an early U.S. harvest and maybe even a fast one. With harvest activity well underway, corn and soybean yields are being reported throughout six states already.

For farmers in Louisiana, the corn harvest is nearly completed, while Illinois and Indiana farmers are opening up some of their first fields. Overall, the soybean yields coming out of the Delta are very impressive. The Delta's irrigated corn yields are average-to-above average, while the dryland corn is disappointing, yield reporters say. 

A 2010 Yield Survey is underway in the 'Crop Talk' section of Agriculture.com. This year's yields compared to a year ago can be reported here.

With an updated weather forecast indicating normal-to-above normal Midwest temperatures for the next six to eight weeks, corn maturity is expected to be rapid. Many are reporting that soybeans are beginning to 'turn' coloration.
