Farm Journal Midwest Crop Tour - August 21 - 24, 2017

Crop Tour

The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour’s primary goal is to provide the industry with accurate growing season information about likely corn and soybean yields at the state and regional levels during the upcoming harvest season.

Learn more about this year's Crop Tour.

Crop Tour’s data-gathering methods are disciplined and produce consistent results. The Tour’s crop scouts — especially the new ones — receive formal instruction before the Tour and training from Tour veterans along the way. Results from the Tour have a big impact on Pro Farmer Newsletter’s annual crop production estimate released at week’s end. But observations gathered during the Tour can be just as important as the data itself.
