#1:Pro Farmer Crop Tour

Our own Ty Higgins got to ride along on this Eastern leg of the much-anticipated annual tour of crop fields across the Corn Belt. With the dry weather this year, farmers everywhere were wondering just how bad the fields would be and how low yields would be. Ty’s commentary, articles and videos were popular around the country and throughout Ohio and he documented the good, the bad and the very bad yields in fields from Ohio to Minnesota. The final average yield estimates from the tour were 120.25 bushels per acre for corn and 34.8 bushels per acre
for soybeans.
