AgriVisor manager Joe Camp’s crop tour extended to 10 states, covering a large portion of the Corn Belt. As his tour closes this week, Camp reflected on USDA’s large crop expectations. The Aug. 12 report called for a 13.9 billion bushel crop on an average yield of 169 bushels per acre. “I don’t see it,” Camp said on RFD Profit Watch. “In part, because I haven’t seen some of these states that are going to make up big yields and help to pad this total.” Camp expects Nebraska to be a key contributor, and some southern states to contribute more than usual.
