July County-Level Yield Forecast Infographic

Accurately forecasting yield is crucial to planning your harvest. But understanding what will happen isn’t enough – understanding where and why it’s likely to happen provides a level of insight that will help you take your business to the next level. Learning which counties might have higher-than-anticipated yields allows you to plan your own harvest, including pricing, capacity, and supply-chain considerations across counties. Let CIBO’s county-level models help you make informed decisions for your farm and agribusiness. Compared to the USDA’s ten-year average, CIBO models currently predict the following yield percentage increases:

August Pre-Derecho Predicted Corn Yields (bu/ac)*

Pre derecho CIBO Predicted Corn Yields

CIBO National Corn Yield Estimate: 187.9 (bu/ac)

Favorable weather conditions were observed in July with ample rainfall and cooler temperatures as most of the corn belt entered the grain filling stage. These nearly ideal growing conditions are the main factor in CIBO’s predictions of corn yields meeting, or exceeding, typical USDA yields.

The CIBO crop inference engine uses satellite imagery to estimate the planting date of crops for parcels across the corn belt. We adopt cutting edge machine learning techniques to learn patterns from image and crop data, resulting in rich statistical models which we use to generate agricultural information at a large scale, such as the county median planting dates for corn parcels in the corn belt shown here.

CIBO Predicted Corn Reduction Yields, based off of derecho (bu/ac)*

DerechoYieldsGifCircledFASTER

CIBO analyzed the preliminary National Weather Service Storm Reports for the August 10, 2020 derecho to examine potential impacts on corn yields. We used NOAA data to identify affected counties that may have sustained crop damage. These counties are located primarily in Iowa, Illinois and Indiana. We model four different damage scenarios in the affected counties which are displayed in the animation. Compared to our original August yield predictions, we modeled how a 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% crop loss in these counties would impact overall predicted yields for 2020. The animation loops through the different scenarios showing the different impacts by color. Dark blue is higher yield, lighter hues and yellow display lower predicted yields. You can clearly see the path of destruction through Iowa, Illinois and Indiana from the August 10, 2020 derecho. The true extent of the impact on yields won’t be known for several weeks. Some corn may stand back up, affected counties may change and the Storm Reports are still being refined.

September Predicted Corn Yields (bu/ac)*

CIBO National Corn Yield Estimate: 182 (bu/ac)

The biggest impacts to corn yield predictions in 2020 are the less than ideal planting conditions this spring and the derecho event in August. The overall weather conditions have been ideal for bumper crops. If we hadn’t had either of these two events, we would be predicting record yields throughout the corn-growing region.

The continued lack of rainfall combined with the derecho event and the less than ideal planting conditions is likely to result in yields below the USDA average.

The big story for September was the lack of rainfall throughout most of the United States, including North and South Dakota; Central Plains, central Illinois, and Indiana. Eastern Iowa and northern Illinois did have some increased rainfall. The continued lack of rainfall likely impacted some areas as crops were reaching maturity in mid-to-late September. However, the Delta region did receive ample rainfall and thus yields in this region are predicted to be some of the highest in the US.
