Farmers are still talking about the recent USDA crop report with the government forecasting corn yields of more than 178 bushels per acre. Channel Seed grain marketing consultant Matthew Bennett says that record number is credible. “I know guys don’t want to hear that, but there is corn in the ‘I’ states, Nebraska and parts of Minnesota that is going to be as good as its ever been. The question is how is it going to average out with the areas that are hurting. It will end up being a pretty darn big corn crop.” Bennett spoke at a Channel Seed event Wednesday at Hitterdal, Minnesota.
