The US corn crop is in its critical pollination stage, and hot and dry conditions are weighing on yields. Gro’s US Corn Yield Forecast Model is currently signaling the US will have one of the weakest corn harvests in years.
As we continue to monitor the US corn crop, Gro Intelligence and DTN will be partnering again for a fifth annual Gro x DTN Digital Yield Tour. We will be tracking how the US corn and soybean crops are progressing so far this season.
Beginning Monday, August 8th, we will bring a field-level view from the DTN team and a regional, global, and climate view from the Gro Platform to present you with comprehensive and on-the-ground reporting of national yield estimates.
Leveraging Gro’s US Corn Yield Forecast Model
The Gro US Corn Yield Forecast Model estimates in-season yields at the county, state, and national levels daily.
Our model uses spatially explicit weather, vegetative health, and soil data to monitor environmental and crop conditions during the growing season. The model updates daily to continuously forecast final yield and help you better understand the effect of climate on crop yield and production.
With Gro’s Yield Forecast Models, teams across industries can:
Like all Gro models, the industry-leading US Corn Yield Forecast Model is built by our team of data scientists, agronomists, and industry experts. It is continually updated throughout the growing season, accurately providing the latest yield forecast weeks ahead of USDA estimates.
