Will USDA lower MN Yields anytime soon? I was at a meeting yesterday in WCMN and they talked about how excited everyone 2 months ago was about the expected yields in Corn and Beans. Now most of the beans and 1/2 of the corn is harvested there is much disappointment in the yields. Bean yields are about average, but not the 10+ above average many were expecting and corn is about the same, average not the 20+ above average many were expecting. Not a bad crop, but certainly not the BIG one many were expecting. I have heard much the same from other areas around the state, except I have not heard much from the SE corner.
