"analysts surveyed" sounds like the "sources say" format of used on most news agencies.
What does that quote from Jerry Gidel mean??
We just needed to publish something today, I guess.

i gotta agree with the lack of experts even really considering the frost they blew it off so they could knock our prices down,i harvested 680 acres of beans and they averaged 34.7 my best field did 41 so wow what a crop.
Lower soybean yield
Craig Kelley 10/10/2011 @ 9:12pm
The frost that "did very little damage" sure was a different story when harvesting. The yield monitor dropped by over 10 bushel in the frosted areas and down to under 15 bu in the areas of sudden death and frost. The whole area (West Central Iowa) from Hwy 59 west has a lot of 35 to 45 bu soybeans when usual yields are over 50. On my farms, the yields are down from last year from 14 bu on my best producing farm and up to 19 bu less on the others. Maybe the 'experts' should reevaluate the nonevent September frost...
Beans not up to Par
John Wilcox 10/10/2011 @ 8:10pm
I know our beans in Northwest Iowa are not what we are use to. We are averaging around 50 bu, when most of us are use to 60. I have heard of a lot of 45's. In the last 10 years, this will be the worst bean crop I have grown. Guess I'm in the wrong part of the country this year. Most of these beans were treated with fungicide, insectide, and some were foliar fed We had some fields that were frosted in the low areas, and you could visually see where they were frosted. There was a 5-10 bushel difference between frosted and unfrosted beans.
