With planting difficulties in the Corn Belt, S & W Trading market analyst Andy Shissler forecasts yield to be down substantially. “We’re not going to hit trend line yield planting a crop in June. It’s insane,” he says. “The conditions have been so wet and cold, we didn’t have many growing degree days. This seems way bigger than 1993.” Shissler says some farmers muddied their corn in to get the crop insurance bushels for October. “It’s a better deal than prevent plant, provided farmers can get a crop into the ground.”
