U.S. Corn Harvest Weather Seen Mixed
DES MOINES, Iowa (Agriculture.com)—As the corn and soybean crops finish their growing seasons, all eyes turn toward the U.S. fall harvest weather.
Dan Hicks, Freese-Notis Weather Inc. senior meteorologist, says that the first harvest outlook indicates a continuation of the late-summer weather for the Midwest.
Meanwhile, El Niño continues to strengthen across the equatorial Pacific, and all indications are that this event will end up as one of the strongest on record since 1950,” according to MDA Weather Services senior agriculture meteorologist Kyle Tapley.
Seven strong El Niño events have occurred since 1950, but this El Niño may challenge 1997, the strongest on record, says Tapley.
