FS agronomists canvas Midwest to collect corn yield data as harvest begins

BLOOMINGTON – FS agronomists are canvasing the Midwest collecting corn yield data as harvest gets underway. States with FS agronomists on the ground collecting data for the 2023 FS Crop Tour include Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The data collected, including estimated yield and number of locations sampled, is uploaded to the FS Agronomy Yield Analyzer.

The tool clusters the map points, consolidated by a specific geographic area, and calculates the estimated yield of that area. The data is constantly changing as agronomists input new data daily.

“We can harness the power of our System with the yield analyzer because it allows each crop specialist in the Midwest to not only see how their field-level estimations are coming, but how it compares to the estimations throughout our System,” said Senior Agronomist Seth Geisler.

Farmers are encouraged to check the FS Agronomy Yield Analyzer App, which also works on a web browser, for the most up-to-date estimates in their area by visiting, https://agronomyapps.growmark.com/YieldAnalyzer.
