US crop tour projects higher Ohio corn output



On Monday, Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour estimated corn harvest in Ohio, US to be sharply higher than the previous year at 167.69 bushels per acre (bpa), Reuters reported.


That figure is up sharply from the 2019 crop tour average of 140.85 bpa and up from the three-year crop tour average of 161.46 bpa.


The four-day crop tour, which does not project soybean yields, estimated the amount of soybean pods in a three-by-three foot square in Ohio at an average of 1,155.68 pods—also up from last year's average of 764.01 pods and the three-year average of 1,035.17.
