August Production and Yield Forecasts for Corn and Soybeans Now Available!

 As the August WASDE report draws near, Barchart has released their August Yield and Production forecasts for U.S. corn and soybeans. 

The August Yield and Production Report forecasts end-of-season corn yield to be 177.8 bu/ac as opposed to the USDA’s July 12th forecast of 177.0 bu/ac. This increase in yield correlates to an increase in production, forecasted to be 14.7B bu. This compares to the 14.5B bu from the USDA. While corn yields displayed an increase, soybean yields fell .1 bu/ac from the USDA with a forecast of 51.4 bu/ac. This translates to a soybean production forecast of 4.6B bu compared to the USDA’s 4.5B bu.
