Wake Up Call Allendale Advisory Center: Crop yield reports continue to come in from all around the cornbelt.

Soybean yields have shocked many producers as many early harvest yields are 65 to as high as 80 bushels per acre. A North Dakota producer said, “we would normally brag about 40 bu soybeans and now we are harvesting 50 bushel per acre.”
